Serene Sunset Lanzarote
This was another long exposure image taken at the Playa Grande beach Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote with a 104 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.
Topaz adjust was used with Stylised presets group with Whisperley preset for a mono look. With Topaz applied on a layer a layer mask was used to exclude the effect from all except the sea.
To brighten the sea which was to light I made a selection of the sea with the rectangular marquee tool and then image adjustments Exposure and used the sliders to bring this up a little.
I made further slight adjustments to the sea with a curves adjustment layer with a layer mask.
General adjustments in levels to enhance.
Overall Saturation was reduced for softer colours.
Another Saturation adjustment layer was used to bring up saturation in the foreground only using a layer mask.
Topaz clarity preset was used to bring more detail into the foreground only using a layer mask.
Layers flattened before going on to noise reduction and a little sharpening.
The healing brush and clone brush were used to remove sensor dust marks.
