photoblog image Beautiful Winter Day at Beach

Beautiful Winter Day at Beach

 

At the Belgium coast we have a lot of miserable days. Such ones where the sky is flat gray, rather windy, very humid and mostly raining. It makes you stay inside the whole day because it's just not nice at all outside. Luckily once in a while we have a blue sky, lots of sun and not too much wind. It's the ideal time to go to the beach with your children. Even if it's 4 degrees Celsius outside.

 

 

TECH-INFO: I was sitting on my knees (see the shadow) and took 5 images too merge them into HDR one. During tone-mapping I enhanced details in brighter and darker areas. In Photoshop I added a gradient layer to darken the sky, tweaked the colors with the selective color tool and brightened the foreground a bit. Also vignetting is added. Enjoy!

Such tranquility
LightningPaul: Thanks Chantal smile
So well done that it looks as though you didn't do anything, Paul!
LightningPaul: Thank you Tom smile
Very good Paul, I like the unbroken horizon althoughmany judges, what do they know, would say the rocks should be breaking it, I don't agree.

Certainly looks like a lovely day. I don't mind staying inside smile
have to say this is a very well done image, love the straight horizon with so much detail below it and smooth clear skies above.
If that your shadow, i actually think you should have tried to make this shot without it, because it was the first thing my eye caut, instead of that beautiful sea scape here.
