Lanzarote Sunset Reflections
This was taken on the Playa Grande beach Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote at low tide. This week in Lanzarote there has been a lot of scattered thin clouds making for some good sunrises and sunsets.
The picture was taken on a Tripod with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 16 mm. 3 raw images 2EV spacing. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.
The 3 images at 2EV separation were outputted in Photomatix fusion method Natural preset.
The Plus 2 EV image was opened in RAW, exposure increased to get some detail in the rocks. This image was then copied in as a new layer. A black layer mask was used to exclude this. Then a white brush at 15% opacity was used to build up a little detail in the black rocks on the beach.
Hue saturation slight increase in yellows and slight decrease in reds.
Layers flattened before going on to sharpening.
Duplicate layer Noiseware Pro and a little sharpening.
Second duplicate layer with mask to apply extra sharpening and contrast with low amount and high radius using Unsharp mask (Clarity Effect) The settings were 42 amount and 42 radius.
The healing brush was used to remove sensor dust marks.

Below are the Before and After images. First the original. Then the tonemapped image and then the final result.
Original at 0EV
