I have already posted a version of this picture on my photography blog, one with very muted colours. This is it on the right. You can read this blog post here.
I was wondering how this picture might work in colour.
I like my pictures of Sandbanks, which is a great source of landscape photography images for me.
I often find myself down there, seeing what the light is doing. Like on this day, which believe it or not was full of grey clouds but lovely diffused light.
Exposure was 30 seconds, f14, ISO 100.
To get such a long exposure in daylight I used a Lee Big Stopper neutral density filter.
I added the colours and tones in Lightroom, which you can see in the first image. I didn’t like the foreground to be honest, so did a free format crop in Lightroom giving the panoramic picture you can see below this first image.
I then took my processing a further step, carrying out a black and white conversion using Snapseed on my iPad Pro.
Since the demise of Nik Silver Efex Pro I have been enjoying the simplicity of Snapseed. I have not yet had a go with Luminar, which I am looking forward to trying once I get stuck into my pictures of Santorini.
But that is for the future. I will keep posting the odd new image on my photography blog, whilst concentrating on updating my web site pages.
In the meantime, thanks for reading this post and I hope you enjoy these alternative edits of my picture of the view looking towards Brownsea Island and the boats in the Sandbanks waters.
