Now seemed to be the perfect time to share this group of pictures taken of a young couple walking along the beach boardwalk in the port city of Chania on the Island of Crete in Greece. It was just like they were dancing a waltz as I watched him twirl her to put his arm around her shoulder. What a joy to see Summer Lovin’ represented with this two young people.

Lightroom & Photoshop remarks for Stacy’s ABFriday settings on Visual Venturing:
Nikon D60 with Nikor DX 18-55mm lens 3.5-5.6
Original 3872×2592 cropped to 3335×2488 then down to 1500×1150(approx.)
In Lightroom shadow saturation increased, black clipping increased 7, vibrance +10, white clipping 0 to -5, exposure from -1.07 to -1.19, clarity increased 5-10, temperature +10.  Similar changes were made to each of  images.  I’m not sure how much change will be visible in the comparison of the two images.
In Photoshop cropped to new size, completed unsharp mask, upped the color balance midtones blue +7.




Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’


  1. Awww, what a great series of moments you captured, Karen. And your edits, while subtle, really do make a difference. Thanks for submitting your work to ABFriday — always love to see what your up to behind the scenes 🙂 How’s the oil refinery photo coming, by the way??

    1. Hi Stacy. I thought this young couple was so fun and was amazed that my camera was ready when they showed their affection. I’m still not finished with the oil refinery. We keep traveling too much but are on our last trip for awhile. Hope to wrap it up over the next little while. 🙂

    1. Thank you. I was lucky to let alone see them sharing their joy of each other but to also capture it on camera. 🙂
