I guess these could be alien shores since I am not Thai and I am a legal alien in their country! Well, until my visa expires and I fly home.
This is still Wongamat Beach in Thailand, just my creative version of it. This is what happens when I go to Stuck In Customs. I get the urge to do a HDR image. To be honest, I shoot all my shots for HDR anymore and a lot get blended into some form of it but this one felt right to go towards the surreal versus the realistic version.
There are about 6 layers total in this image with me wanting to draw the focus to the sky and contrast it with the shore. Is it perfect? No. Do I like it? Yep!
