East Park Beach Houses on Lake Michigan

We found a new park on Lake Michigan when we visited the last weekend in May. Each of the house next to the park has its own dock and a canal that allows them access to Lake Michigan. The water color was an amazing bright blue green unlike the water of Lake Michigan. The red roofed structure in the background is a hotel and behind that are a group of lakefront mansions; two of which are owned by Madonna and Tom Hanks (this is what the locals tell us). Bob (Dunstickin) reworked this for me. I do not have an "eye" trained to see what is wrong with these photos. When I look at a photo, I am remembering the trip and not looking for flaws....It would be nice to live on the lakefront for the summer months...It might even be fun to watch the storms while you are safe and snug inside. In the winter, this area is like the north pole...In fact, about 50 miles out of town you cross the 45th parallel. So that means you are halfway between the equator and the North Pole. This area has 5 foot snowfalls in the winter. A nice place to vacation in the summer but I wouldn't want to live there in the winter.

A fabulous view, Fran. I can see why the rich and famous want to live here. All credit to you and Bob for this excellent shot.

It does looks like where the rich and famous might live Fran. Forrest Gump and Madonna seem a unlikely pair, lol.
You will learn to compose and edit your shots. It looks like you are off to a great start with the composition on this one.

A beautiful place to live and an excellent shot Fran! I don't know what Bob did to it, but I have a feeling it was pretty good before he got his hands on shot and post!

Fran, in my country we have the saying 'Keulen en Aken (names of two German towns) zijn ook niet op één dag gebouwd.' When literally translated into the Englisch language, it reads: "Cologne and Aachen are not built in a day.", which means that everything needs its time, so becoming editing skills as well. On the Caedes site one can find already a lot of good editing information. When it gives problems to interpret this information in a correct way, know for sure Caedes friends are willing to lend you a helping hand!
Thanks anyhow for this wonderful image. Bob and you have done a perfect job again!
Regards, Cornelius.
