Half Moon Bay

November 10th, 2011

Taken in Half Moon Bay, California. I used a series of cheap ND and Graduated ND filters which gave the scene a magenta hue. After correcting the colors in Photoshop, I realized I liked it better the way it was.

Nikon D3100, Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, ND filters, Adobe Photoshop CS5.

A little too vibrant purple/pink for the scene to me... (maybe just darken and desaturate a bit? Or add some cream/yellow colors with diffuse glow to the highlights on a separate layer then turning down the opacity?). It's still a peaceful shot, with nice details in the rock especially, yet the foreground blur works nicely. I really think the vignette was very well done, as it doesn't take your eye too much away from the mountain layers in the background, which finish off the depth one usually finds in landscapes. I think for even more balance you could have tilted the camera a tiny bit down to move the horizon line up while straightening it more (it's really close to straight, but leans down on the right it seems). Haha didn't mean to find so many bad things, just trying to help a good shot look even better. You definitely have an eye for things that would look interesting to examine.
