A Nice Day by the Ocean (part two)
Just one for today, since this image kind of stands alone in my time sequence. About 45 minutes later in the day than the two in my previous post, the sun is low enough to give the sky a bit of color now, when not covered by the clouds. The soft light gives the blues and yellows a pleasing pastel-like look. You can see from the water action that the exposure is getting longer, too. When reviewing the thumbnail images right out of the camera, as shot, I almost passed on this one as it looked kind of flat and uninteresting due to the low contrast, but with just some quick correction to the levels and a touch of saturation, it became one of my favorites of the set.
