    you should be able to figure it out...
    I've been at the shore for the past couple of weeks, with one more to go. Lots of family the first week and a half (oddly, I'm the only guy) - just my wife and I now. I like it both ways. Anyway, I've shot mostly with the X-Pro and EM-5, but have done a few shots with the GRD3 and even one with the iPhone. I haven't really done much shooting, but have done some. Pretty much all typical beach and family shots.

    Gotta have at least one sunset:

    Well done Sir, a smashing wee set, I especially like the first few. Bit of nifty processing in there too.

    They're all wonderful in their own particular ways, Ray. Right now I'm trying to figure out how I can teleport!

    How wonderful to be there for several weeks, and also to have those three generations together.

    Sigh...I love the beach on the Atlantic.:cloud-9-039:

    Fabulous shots there Ray. Tough picking out favourites but I will anyway! 2 and 3 just make me yearn to be by the sea again - lovely processing. The shot of your wife's aunt is terrific, though I expect she wishes you'd softened it a little! That last sunset shot is great too.

    Very nice. I like the colour of the sand and the compositional elements in the first. Nice shots of the family too. It's interesting to see your processing style transferred into a different environment.

    Another quick handful. First, playing around with a telephoto and a dog who favors water sports:

    A couple of HiBW shots with the GRD3 on an early morning bikeride up to the lighthouse:

    And a couple more sunsets starting witha shot my wife did on her iPhone - I helped with the processing:
