A second shot in my Glimpses of the Sea series found as I continued my morning walk. I don't think it is as attention grabbing as the first shot but to my eyes it is nevertheless a pleasant and inviting view. I am trying to include some of the foreshore elements in these scenes with the sea forming a part of the view.
Again, I used a graduated ND filter to reduce the brightness of the sky and sea. Even so, it was still necessary to add fill light in the RAW conversion step of processing. Dodge, burn, levels and sharpening brush were employed as well. Juggling the sliders in Photoshop's black & white adjustment is a tool I use to relatively alter tone levels. I could have cloned out the lens flare from the sun but chose in this case to leave it in shot. I think it accentuates the intensity of the light.
