Hi all.

I was going to keep this up my sleeve for a while, but as Paul and Fran posted the nuclear part of our evening shoot at Priest's Cove, I decided I may as well join in!

45 minutes after yesterday's little snapette.
Almost nothing in the way of colour adjustments here. It's a two-exposure blend with some selective contrast massaging for those interested.
And yep, it really was that lovely! Grin

Thanks for dropping in.
Off to say hi to Bee, as she's just got home. Catch up soon.

Bill

Sneaky ... and there was me feeling sorry for you being on the 'wrong' side of the cove Wink

Might be tempted to reduce the impact of the curved flares, but then I'm just being picky because I can Tongue Wink

If you know how to do that, I'm all ears, Paul! Had tentative go but abandoned it in the end, as I kind of liked them! Wink

Done a quick test ... just use the dodge & burn tool set at a lowish opacity [say 15%] and 'shadows' then slowly burn in mate. Keep dabbing rather than brushing you get a much more natural result.

Just done it on this shot and it only took 30 seconds. Would be a little longer on the full resolution file though.

All completely useless if you like them though Wink Tongue

What a cracking image. The composition and drama are as good as I have seen in a coastal image in a long time Bill.
My only criticism is that on my monitor the image has a strong Magenta cast. I just had a play in PS and it was easy to correct using the colour balance layer if you are interested. Other than that. Outstanding.

Thanks again people!

Cheers for that, Paul. I'll give it a whirl! Knew there was an easy way, just couldn't remember what it was....duh! Wink
Bee says Hi back, Fran! Smile

Thanks, Derek.
It may be due to a Hightec 4-stop ND, although, tbh, I can't remember if I was using one at the time. I think, probably not.
It looks fine on my screen or I would have corrected it, and I've not had that kind of issue with other images.

Grateful for your lovely compliment, Linda Smile
