View from a cliff facing sunset in the Cilento area, here I captured various exposures for the various point of focus in order to focus stack the final image, to this I then add a separate exposure for the sun and a long exposure for the sea water.


I made this shot using focus stacking technique and a long exposure using my Hoya IRND filters.

I blended the image using TTS PRO 3.0  than I added the exposure for the water and for the sun. In the edit I correct color cast, increase details and add contrast. I intensified the colors of the sky and added an orton effect o the image, than with dodge and burn I fix the light over the areas I need around the rocks and the cliff.

I hope you will find this usefull. I love to ear this from you!
