Today's first of the month Daily Photo them is the favorite photo posted for 2008. My selection is a photo of my younger son, Stuart, taken against the sun setting off the Tamarindo/Langosta beach. This photo was not photo-shopped in any way. What you see is how it was recorded by the camera.
The effect of his disappearing feet, which makes it appear as though he is rising out of the ocean, was achieved by the fact that he was standing on a rock and the waves were splashing behind him higher than the rock.
Stuart works as a Quality Assurance Engineer for a high-tech internet company in Scottsdale, Arizona. He has photos of Costa Rica hanging at his cubicle. He reports to me that this photo attracts the most attention and comments from his colleagues.
