Swiss Chapter: Favourite of the Month - August 2014

Chapter: Switzerland

This August the e-circle of the Swiss Chapter has decided to vote for 'Neptune Plage' by Ralf Ramge as the favourite of the month. Here are a few words by Ralf about his successful photograph:

This image was taken at the beach in Nice, France. The antique look of this old catwalk demanded for an image which looks rather old as well, so the challenge was to accomplish this without destroying the original impression of a sunny vacation day and preserving the positive feelings I had when I was on location.  
Simply using a Sepia tinting would have destroyed this experience. So I took two additional photographs of weathered and sliced cardboard, and superimposed those on the original image.
