Aphrodite's veil

By aeras  
I travel to "Aphrodite's rock" almost every week waiting for some good light and I can say that I have not yet seen Aphrodite coming out of the sea .... yet Smile Knowing before hand where to stand to get the composition you want makes things so much easier ! If you look closely there are some , romantic , tourists standing on the right edge of the big rock. The rock on the lower left is usually hidden , but that evening the waters were a bit lower than usual so I used that to balance the frame. Usual setup , with the Nikon D800 and Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 @ 18mm with the Nisi 10 stop ND plus the Nisi 3 stop soft ND grad. Exposure was 90.0 sec; f/6.3; ISO 100.
Minimal post process. Additionally a curves "S" shaped layer was added with the mid tones as a mask selection to boost mid tones without affecting the highlights and shadows.
