I still have a couple more from portugal.. Here's one from Cabo Raso, which is a great place to do photography. The rough coast there gives many possibilities to find your spot and the sea at this place is quite rough which gives you the opportunity to capture good water movement too. We had a great sunset with nicely lit clouds but after sunset the light became real magic..The purple hue of the clouds in this shot is no processing result, it's just how it looked.
Details: hoya HD Pol + Lee 0.6 hard grad Processing: Main work lightroom 3 and then d&b contrast + selective saturation adjustments to finish it off.
Hope you like it, was quite a windy evening where I had to constantly whipe my filters.
This is the last shot I took at Cabo Raso on a magnificent evening for photography, meaning plenty of clouds with the light shining through and an abundance of color right after the sun had set. I tried to arrange the shot so that the gap in the clouds harmonizes with the swirling water in front of me, unfortunately in the upper right there was no light getting through and nearly no texture in the clouds but I still like it.
I used a lee 0.9 hard grad and a hoya hd polarizer and the postprocessing was mostly contrast adjustments.
have a nice weekend, hopefully I'll find the time to go out shoot again, even if it's only here in germany ;-)
