My Towns best Feature



The Coeur d'Alene Lake is one of our towns best features, most people here call it the "Beach" even tho it is actually a lake. It brings many tourist during the summer and thousands flock here for the firework show on the 4th of July. We also have one of the best Christmas lighting shows in the U.S. ( All done on the lake) So I wanted to focus on the lifeguard chair with a bit of the lake in the background. I added the vintage action to make it look kind of old and faded.

Awesome picture, Teri! Did you use PW vintage? I like it... it makes it feel like a beach scene from a long time ago...

I like the vintage effect. The photo is very well framed, too.

I like the great effect! Makes it look timeless. Nice job. I might have liked to see it cropped so part of the chair starts going out of the picture...but I'd have to see it to know for sure. Beautifully done

Very nice! I love the vintage feel you added to it, but I also think the photo probably could have stood on it's own. I love it, anyway!

Way to think out of the box, I really loved the feel of this, and your focus too.

I wanna go to the beach! : )
