Beach goers in Manhattan Beach, CA still enjoy the late July day despite cloudy skies. A few guys throw around a football, while a child walks from left to right near the center of the frame. The a large column holding up the pier is directly placed on the right third of the photo, the cones create a diagonal, while the beach houses round out the composition as they appear to endlessly recede into the background. Stunning clarity due to HDR processing and one of the sharpest lenses Canon offers, the EF 17-40mm f/4L at f/16 giving up an incredible field of view.
