Apostles : Before and after
The image below was taken at the 12 apostles about 45 minutes pre dawn. It was a 60 second exposure taken with the 70-200 lens . The flat RAW didn’t really convey what I was seeing or imagining to present so here are ways I accentuated aspects of the original to give it its final look.
- Contrast between warm and cool tones between rock and water (exported a warm and cool version to blend in photoshop)
- Separation in contrasts between the overlapping apostles
- Accentuating that warm vs cool with the lighting coming from right of image
- Keeping the contrast well down in the water
- Giving a sense of depth by reducing contrast, saturation, sharpening progressively from front to back of image
- Cloning out distracting lights.
Hope you enjoyed this one!
