    I was lucky enough to have been born and raised on the north-shore coast of Massachusetts about 25 miles north of Boston. I don't live there now but do manage to get up each summer on vacation. Winters can be harsh, but the summer weather is ideal.

    PP in Aperture 3, Viveza 2, and Color Effects Pro.

    They look great John.
    You sure know how to make the G2 sing....
    Thanks for that special shot...

  4. Nice series! Really like 1 & 6 the best. My only nit would be that they seem to be a tad to low contrast.

    Thank you all for the kind words.

    BB, my sister has a condo right on that beach in the pictures. They are old beach rental apartments that were converted to condos. Her unit is small, but from her 3rd floor deck, she has a 3 million dollar view. My issue was trying to convince my 12 year old that we should go somewhere else besides the beach.

    Thanks John, now I am even more jealous...though truth be told I'd probably prefer a house on the beach.:biggrin:

    I'd be swimming with your 12 year old!:2thumbs:

    Really nice set John. I tend to like the ones with less obvious processing, but the more heavily processed shots are also very good in their own way. Just a matter of personal preference. But in terms of subject matter and composition, I really like the whole set.
