The Shot

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. This was another Dawn from the earlier on taken on 11 January

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.


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


General adjustments in levels and curves to enhance with layer masks to exclude the Sun.

Vibrance layer increase 33 points

Hue Saturation layer saturation increased in reds and yellows to improve the sunrise colours.

Layers flattened before going on to sharpening

First duplicate layer Noiseware Pro and a little sharpening

Second duplicate layer Topaz Adjust using Vibrant presets, detail strong with some adjustments and slight vignette.

Healing brush with Content aware and clone stamp was used to remove a flare in the pool.
