Revere, MA 071511 Competitors in the Revere Beach National Sand Sculpting Festival at Revere Beach on July 15, 2011 work on their entries: The Veil and Castle, as beach-goers stop by to catch a glimpse of the artwork. (Essdras M Suarez/ Boston Globe)/MET BEHIND THE SCENES: I've photographed this event a couple of times in the past but this time the weather was perfect and some of the sand sculptures were simply breathtaking. TECH STUFF: As always my trusty wide angle zoom 16-35mm 2.8 and the 70-200mm 2.8., WB cloudy, ISO 320, Aperture 11-16, speed 1/500th of a second plus. In an environment so filled with competing visual elements creating separation between the many subjects and the backgrounds is what makes this a challenging scenario.
