Ian Lloyd

By chrisfroud
In Capture One, I adjusted the white balance and pulled the exposure down 1/3 stop, and gave it a gentle S-curve adjustment.

Into photoshop and a little bit of perspective correction using the 'Skew' tool. I tried to minimise this when shooting but with such a wide-angle its difficult, especially as I wanted to shoot down on the boat. Then curve adjustments on a few selected regions (sky, foreground, boats, etc).

Finally, some selective sharpening and save for the web!

1/13s @ f/18, 0.6 soft ND grad

I am in awe. This is very special, and I love what you have done. I understand all the tools you used but have never tried the Skew Tool. This new feature is fascinating me, but it is going to be a great help to those, like myself, who would like to be able to produce such results as this. The original image is, of course, good, but the edited one is magnificent.

Superb - one of the best shots I have seen from this spot. The composition is execlent, and the 'before and after' is facinating.

I prefer te tonality of the original image myself, or a halfway point between the original and finished to add that little bit more pop
