Hi.

A shot taken 13 seconds after "Alone on the Beach" which I uploaded a little while ago.

For the past eighteen months or so I've been sticking fairly rigidly to keeping the WB to daylight or, at most, upping it from Nikon's 5000K daylight setting to Adobe's 5500K daylight setting.

For this shot I actually boosted it in the RAW converter to somewhere in the region of 7500K to 8000K, to see where it would take me.

After the RAW conversion, I then used a hybrid of Paul's technique (pmorgan) and my own "micro-tonal" curves adjustments.
It yielded a completely different image, whilst still retaining the essential dusk moodiness.

"Alone on the Beach" is much closer to what I saw, but I quite like this different version, too.
I hope you do , too. Though, somehow, I doubt it.

Anyway, thanks for getting here.

Cheers

Bill

Your processing, whatever it was, work really well. The colours are certainly strong but I think it suits the image well, and the detail in the sand is wonderful.
