Sunset on Monarch Beach

sunset on monarch beach

We stayed at a hotel on Monarch Beach for a few of days and caught this gorgeous sunset. This part of the beach was beautifully calm and quiet but a few hundred feet farther south it was crowded with surfers every day.

Just for fun I tried DxO’s Film Emulation Software. You’ll get dozens of filters for color, color negative, cross processed and black and white film from Fuji, Kodak, Agfa, Ilford and not to forget: Polaroid!

The results can be nostalgic, creepy, painting like looking, or the very familiar graininess. In any case you’ll get a picture that has that something extra that’s missing from today’s often too perfect images. Here I applied one of the Kodak filters:
