Whitby Sunset

By TrevBatWCC    
Back to some digital jiggery-pokery! The foreground is Whitby Abbey looking across the small lake to the rear and towards Sandsend. The shot was taken at 14:50 on a summer's afternoon, with more cloud than sunshine. Cropped off much of the original foreground below the lake, and took the Levels in Photoshop right down until almost a silhouette, just leaving a bit of detail. Cutting out the existing sky I replaced it with one of a sunset taken four days previously at 21:55, looking the same direction but from the Whitby's West Cliff. Added a touch of Radial Motion Blur to the sky, plus some Lens Flare to the where the sun had just set. And that's it! 😃

Very effective jiggery pokery, Trev. The sun flare and that radial blur combine to help the scene looks realistic, and the level of detail you've left in the silhouette is just right.
