Av: F/7.1, Tv: 1/1000s, f:18mm

Equipment: Nikon D3000 with standard 18-55 VR lens.

This was shot at Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui island, Thailand. This is my first attempt at partial B&W editing. I dint even know how to use layers in GIMP until now.

Although I have learnt a few things now, I am not very pleased with the result, nor the procedure. I edit the RAW using RAW Therapee, then do this layers thing using GIMP, finally use Picasa to add my signature! Not sure whether I will try such editing again in the future.

Coming to the photo itself, I do like the lazy relaxed mood it gives, not to mention the memories it brings back :)
