Sunset Reflections Last Light

Sunset Reflections Last Light
The Shot

This was taken on the Playa Grande beach Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote at low tide. This was taken on the same day as the Fire in the Sky image earlier in my Photostream but in the latter part of the sunset. It was also at a much wider angle 10mm as opposed to 20mm with more reflection in the wet sand

The picture was taken on a Tripod with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10 mm. 3 raw images 2EV spacing. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

Photomatix

Outputted in Photomatix to detail enhancer. Click the Camera name top right for Exif details and the settings used.

Photoshop

General adjustments in levels and curves to enhance.

The colours needed very little adjustment, Vibrance layer increase 21 points

Hue Saturation layer saturation slight decrease in reds and yellows and slight increase in blues.

Layers flattened before going on to sharpening

First 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 73 amount and 73 radius.

Another duplicate layer was used for Topaz Adjust Vibrant, detail 2 preset with some adjustments for extra “pop”
