The freshness of this picture is superb. I love the chipped nail polish and the crisp reflection. It evokes summer play and fun.

Transparency, freshness and calmness are the words that pop in my head when I see this crisp clean photo of a beautiful beach, the sky and the surf.

This one reminds me of my childhood in the beach and how fun it was playing with my sister in the surf.
Amazing back lit photo where you can feel the energy and enthusiasm of the children even without seeing their faces.

Love the boats. The turquoise water and the background mountains instantly send me to a tropical island on holidays, even if for just a second. A girl can dream, right?!

This is a recurring topic where I pick a photo from the Creative Commons (CC) library and feature it as Creative Commons of the Week.

Beautiful photo of summer taken in the Greek countryside. The contrasting sky, the dry yellow field and green mountains give this landscape picture the distinct sense of the Mediterranean summer time.
Notice the way the sky is lit, there are no major overexposed bits. This light is diffuse and the sun enhances the clouds. Very good post production work.
