AR 2016 Photo Contest - Real Life Category Special Effect Photo

Dick Greenberg is hosting an ActiveRain 2016 Photography Contest.



This post is my entry is for the Real Life Category - Special Effect


I took this photo with my Canon Camera.  The photo was not edited in any way other than resizing it. I selected this photo because it is just fun.  It was taken recently at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay while my friend was here visiting from Cambridge Massachusetts.  

It may not actually be a special effect but after an amazing lunch we decided that champagne was a good idea as we sat in lounge chairs over looking the ocean and the golf course.  The view is gorgeous even through a champagne glass. 

Cheers to the good life, good times, good friends, and having fun!

That's a good representation of the glass! A nice creative abstract in a way. Love and light.

Kathleen, what a great photo!  My first thought was, "Kathleen took a day off to relax and play a round of golf at Pebble Beach!"  Why go down to Monterey when you have Half Moon Bay???

Kathleen- I love it!  It's artistic and creative enough to be used for a print ad.

It makes me want to break out some Prosecco and sit with you right NOW!  And yes, it IS fun, reminds me of my playing with a large red wine glass and flames from my beautiful firepit dancing behind it while I sat facing Fishhawk Lake at my (now sold) lakefront home with the stunning views. It's glorious and makes me long for those days...thank you.
