Exploding Sunset Lanzarote
This was taken on the Playa Grande beach Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote at not far off low tide and was a 100 second exposure. The wind was moderately strong so there was some good cloud movement
The picture was taken on a Tripod with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10 mm.
Processing started with adjustments in Camera RAW for better detail and colours. The sliders used included exposure, Vibrance and clarity. I aimed to darken the edge areas and enhance colours
Topaz adjust was used with Vibrance presets group with Specify preset to enhance colours. With Topaz applied on a layer a layer mask was used to exclude the effect from some highlight areas.
General adjustments in levels to enhance.
Saturation adjustments, blue channel down to tone down the blues in the sky and red channel a little up to enhance colours more
Layers flattened before going on to sharpening.
Duplicate layer Noiseware Pro and a little sharpening.
The healing brush and clone brush were used to remove sensor dust marks.
