Wednesday last week at Trebarwith Strand, when the sun came out after a dreary bank holiday weekend.
Whilst my partner soaked up the rays, I faffed about with the camera, trying out various ideas.
This is one of them.
Intentionally shot with a panoramic crop in mind as my position and the state of the tide were both favourable.
This is processed with my normal "micro-contrast" adjustments, followed by a brief interlude in LAB mode (the first for many months, in fact) to help separate the cyans/blues/greens from each other, and then for the first time in ages I used the H&S (a seldom used tool) to actually severely desaturate the image.
I may put up the original colour version and a mono conversion at some point for comparison, but this is my preferred version.
IMO, the lack of colour actually makes it more dynamic.
I also usually find that whenever I write something lengthy like this, hardly anyone shows up to look! So thank you for getting this far and I hope you like this as much as I do.
