When I take this picture I was on the beaches in Cilento valley, where one evening I stopped for this at sunset. This area as I said in some posts ago, is characterized by a great variety of natural scenarios, including the sea and the mountains. In this sunset photo I have just portrayed part of this variety including the colors of the beautiful landscapes that this part of Italy can offer
Also here as in the previous post I have taken a natural glow effect that was created with the lights of the sunset, with an intense yellow effect that also came on the rocks. It is a long exposure of 20 seconds made with ND64
I blended two long exposures using luminosity masks, starting from the dark picture to brighten the foreground and the most black rocks.
I used Dodge and burn to made some adjustments on the rocks and on the water, using my panel I increased details and sharpen.
For the adjustments of colors I applied a warming filter to the lights masks and a cold filter to the darks playing with the opacity to create a mix between the two effects
As the final step I added contrast and fixed lights and darks
I will by proud if you will find this information usefull! I’m always happy to hear this from you
