Sirens

[Canon 16-35mm, -1.3EV,  f6.3, 1/2500s,  IS100, 16mm]

This was clicked at our recent trip to the Boca Chica Beach in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. We happened to be there at the wedding of a dear friend of ours. He had a wonderful time and we do recommend visiting the Dominican Republic.

Now about this photo: It was a gorgeous, sunny day and the clouds and the water was incredible so there wasn't much to do in terms of composition. I also had willing models. I used the wide-angle Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 lens that has become the go-to lens these days since I got it earlier last year. I post-processed it in Photoshop using Nik's HDR Efex Pro and Color Efex Pro filters.

SirensThe title came to me from my long association and appreciation for the wonderfully entertaining, if much derided, 1993 film called "Sirens" which is a fun tale of the coming of sensual age of an uptight British couple in the wild abandons of Australia.

They used to show this titillating tale every few days at late nights on Star Movies, at the birth of the TV revolution in India while I was growing up.
