Nightfall Over Crovie

By DavidLangan  
Day fades and the lights start to twinkle in Crovie, the most beautiful and unique village on mainland UK.

Was quite a tricky photo to take - the reality was the conditions were much lighter than the photo looked. I really wanted the lights and reflections to be a big part of the shot - so I over gradded the sky and underexposed the shot by a full stop. In PS I then lightened and saturated the lights and darkened the shadows giving me the effect I was after.
The compositions are better looking along the row of cottages at the start of the pier but I went right to the end of the pier as I really wanted to make something of the reflections in the water amongst the rocks.

Works well, Dave. Great to have both the low light effect and colour with the lights and reflections.
