Our last two sessions were at the beach (different ones). The first was at sunset, the second at sunrise. The first has been blogged (there's more there) and the second will be this week. I'd love your thoughts!

These are fantastic photos. Something to aspire to for sure.

The pose in 10B. Are you happy with it? Great perspective but not sure about that pose especially her.

Love 3A and the last one. Did anyone break a limb? lol

Great work!

I really like 3a, 10a, 4b and 6b. 10a is really, really cool because of how hard that is to accomplish. Occasionally I wish the sun rose or set over the water here like it does for you in 6b. Alas, it sets to the left or right of the shore here. Jealous.

I'm not loving what's happening to their legs and feet in 5a because of the WA distortion.

I don't care if a no-oil-on-sensor, no AF issues D700 replacement comes out next week, images like 5a make getting a 16-35mm, 14-24mm or Tokina 16-28mm a higher priority for me.

6a- did you have an assistant hold a glass wall in front of you? Some other trick? Can't imagine even a D3s or D4 liking being sprayed w/ NaCl H2O...

Yeah, it does distort her legs- but seriously, is any groom ever going to complain about his bride's legs being too long?

Okay so you always post great stuff but this one is perhaps one of my absolute favorites.

3A, 6A, 7A... oh crap there are just too many.

The one that really blows my mind though is 10A. Brilliant.

11B for the WIN... !!!!

really cool images.

Fun to see the gift of creativeness with a camera mixed in with the background of design.

Thanks for posting Tony.

Team Hoffer is bring the heat.

So jealous of these locations as it is so hard here in the south to get a shot much less shots that doesn't have trees in the background. Even getting really low many times will not eliminate them. So shots like 8A really catch my attention. Simple yet beautiful.

The usual Hoffer greatness! How the heck do you guys come up with new ideas for shots every single session.
Great job.

Two really great sets of images. Your OCF work is always so well done.

3A - really great perspective
10A - I love the layers to this one
7B - I'm always hoping for a sunset with clouds like that

2A - The only shot that doesn't work for me. Seems harsh and unflattering on their faces

Solid work!

10A is depressingly amazing. And yes, this is near the top of my favorite Hoffer post too.

3A is my favorite. 10A is something special as well. I wonder if the added light was even warmer whether that might be even more awesome?

Great stuff.

I had a similar scenario like 10A. But I failed to execute it.
It was in my head when we arrived at the beach with fishermen but during the heat of the moment, I forgot about it.

Wow... you must hate your 5d3 in 6A.

How did you get the sky purple? Filter? PS?

Ha... the camera didn't get too wet on 6A.. On the second set however, the camera got fully submerged in a wave. That was scary.

The purple sky wasn't really anything to be honest. It was naturally that way. It was the most incredible (and longest) sunrise I've ever seen. I posted a photo of just the sunrise on our FB page

Fair enough. I worked hard on other areas of that one, so in my head I might have missed the opportunity to work the angles a little better.
