Another waterfall from my recent trip to South Korea, the water of this waterfall ends directly into the sea, I never saw a waterfall like that and I must say that it was very cool photography sunset from a beach with a waterfall on the right 🙂
Upon my arrival I found some people at the foot of the waterfall who were practically on the beach, I would have preferred a frontal view of the waterfall that fell directly into the sea but I had to give it up for a more distant and covered view. At the beginning I tried to photograph from a closer and more central point but it was practically impossible because of all the water spashes in front of
In the picture it doesn’t look like a big waterfall but I can assure you that it was pretty big and had a considerable water flow, so I decided for a vertical shot farther back behind some big rocks (it was one of the few points where you could be without it to be wet)
I captured a series of exposure to make this shot, without the use of practically unusable filters, the water you see moved was captured by longer exposures
I blended the shots using TTS Pro with some exposures taken from before the golden hour till the blue hour, I was able to take the sunlight I like with this
I added details on the frame and I increased the warmth applied to shadows using luminosity masks, I made some adjustments with clone stamp tool to remove some water spot on the lens and I cleaned the scene from other small spots
With the help of dodge and burn I incresed the lighting over the rocks near me and I lightened the water coming from the waterfall. I added a orton effect because I like this kind of effect on waterfalls.
As final steps I decreased the general exposure of the frame just a bit to emphatize the lighting coming from the sunset
I hope you will find this usefull. I’ts a pleasure to ear this from you!
