Stranded in the Moonlight
I took a ride up to Sherwood Island in Westport, Connecticut a couple of weeks ago to photograph the beach and water. When I came home I decided to make it a moon lit beach scene with this elegant woman lying in the sand. I wanted her to appear as if she crawled out of the water and played down from exhaustion. I found this great graphic image of the seashell and decided to use it as a resting place for her head. I then waved my Photoshop brush with stars and I had a magical scene. The beach was actually shot in broad daylight and there were a few people on the beach which I was able to remove in Photoshop.
The woman is one of the vintage images I purchased through e-vint.com and I added different colors to it to bring it out. Beach was photographed with my Fuji X-T1 and the wonderful 10-24mm lens.
