Black and White - Beach Wave Personalized Photo

I tried to perfect my "name in the sand with a wave" picture. This time I used AA's initials.
If anyone wants a photo of their name and/or a special calendar date (or someone else' name as a gift), let us know. Or if you need a picture of the sunrise on a particular date (I have a cousin who will take it). For a small fee, we are thinking $15.00 and we will send the digital photo to you. If you would like it printed and framed and sent as a gift, we can do that too. There are people who "photoshop" the pictures, but we do the real thing and stand on the beach waiting for the wave! (and you can have the picture without my foot prints too!)
Here's the original with no changes:

Here's the black and white version and slight cropping. Which is better?

(two years ago on this date, we were watching the opening of the Olympics in China, knowing we had to wait through the weekend to hear if our referral came in! The BIG day for us was 08/12/08).

I had to fit in a picture of AA too:

Enjoy lots of black and white photos here.

Beautiful black and white. The photo of your little girl is really gorgeous. You get a very peaceful feeling from it.

What a great idea! Me the edited one the best. (Of course, the last one is really the best though.)

Te B&W is sharper, the footprints are more crisp, great shot.

Cora said...

Fun picture, I can't believe it has been 2 years. I like the B&W better

Alyson and Ford said...

I like the B&W better as well.
The early morning light, what there was of it on this shot, just works better in B&W.

However, once the sun pops - then color rules the day! :)

Both versions look great and she looks so cute playing in the sand! I love pictures on the beach.

I did the same thing this summer with my "photography name". It's harder than it looks! The waves wash it away so quickly!

Tara said...

Super cute shots! I love the writing in the sand.

Perfect pictures! Happy Family Day!

I like the edited BW one best...its so defined. You have LOVELY handwriting...perhaps the best "sandwriting" I've seen!

AA on the beach...that bathing couldn't even imagine that 2 years ago, could you!

How amazing she is everyday!
