Theme Thursday - Contrast

Stacy picked 'contrast' as the theme for this week's Theme Thursday. Which caused me a significant amount of stress, since I had NO IDEA what I wanted to do for it. I am, as I have stated before, not all that great with photoshop, and usually post all my shots SOOC for fear that I would just make them worse if I tried to edit them.

Then I remembered the shot I wanted to use. It is actually one of my favorite shots of all time, taken several years ago at Coronado Beach in California. I actually didn't even notice my favorite part of the shot until after I was home and had loaded it onto my computer.

The man in the corner, who appears to be very absorbed in whatever he is thinking about, provides the perfect CONTRAST to the blazing sunset.

Don't forget to check out the other contrast shots for Theme Thursday!

Don't you love it when you don't even realize the best part of the picture until much later? Nice sunset and man! ;-)

I have a picture like that. Only my sun is behind clouds, and the tide is low and there's a plane in the shot! :-)

I really like this photo - the sunset is so striking, and it's a great contrast that he's not even paying attention to it.
