Fire in the Sky Puerto del Carmen

Fire in the Sky Puerto del Carmen
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 by far the best. I felt a bit like the cat that got the cream when I finished photographing this sunset!

The picture was taken on a Tripod with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 20 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 with layer masks to exclude the highlights.

The colours needed very little adjustment, Vibrance layer increase 7 points

Hue Saturation layer saturation decrease in reds and slight increase in magentas.

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)

Healing brush with Content aware and clone stamp was used to remove street light pole on far right.
