Another one from the archives. I had a very productive trip to cornwall last year in may. Every evening another coastline and another sunset to shoot. Here's a shot of the Godrevy Lighthouse. This shot will also serve a bit as a preview of whats to come :-) in two weeks I'll visit one of the most spectacular coastlines in europe. I'm goin on a 1week trip to Portugal, the area east of Lisabon. Flickr and loc.alize.us already helped me scouting the area in advance and there'll be sooo much to shoot. hopefully I'm lucky with the weather.
Some notes about this shot. It's a dri from 3 bracketed exposures blended using enfuse GUI 2.1 and then in addition some hand-blending in photoshop. Then tonal adjustments, curves, slight color adjustments, saturation and dodge&burn with aid of luminance masks.
If you wonder why the lighthouse is not distorted, even though I was shooting wide angle, I selected the portion with the lighthouse and righted it, then I blended it with the original image. This way the lighthouse is straight but I didn't need to correct the whole image.
Hope you like it.
The day before that remarcable sunset at Kynance Cove, which I showed you yesterday, I photographed this clear sunset at Godrevy. Although no clouds were in the sky the wave action provided some nice shooting opportunities, because the breaking waves nicely caught the light of the setting sun.
