summer sunset

I really did enjoy the sunset today! I don't remember ever standing in the centre of a 365 degree panorama of beauty at sunset. Maybe I need to 'look' more often. :)
This is brilliant. Fav.

Wow! Did you do some dodging and burning, like @mwarren365 said, it looks almost 3-D. Beautiful!

@mwarren365 and @mikew - :) It is amazing what an on camera polarizing filter; noise removal and (minimal amount of) high pass filters can do...I didn't change levels at all, and the curves was absolutely minor. (I stunned myself when I looked at the original histogram.) I was tempted to post SOOC (gasp!), but I am not sure I see the point of that ;D Actually even only cropped the bottom to fit the format a little better. The thing I loved the most in this shot is the deep blue gradient, and I did not need to play with that at all. This is as 'naked' as it gets (for me).!

So, so incredibly gorgeous! I had wondered if sooc. What is a high pass filter? Fav
January 5th, 2012  
@elizabeth264 thankyou for your kind words Elizabeth. A high pass filter is a type of sharpening effect in Photoshop type processing software. It can increase contrast on the edges in an image. This was only the second time I have used it, so I am still learning about it too. It would probably only get routine use by professional photographers when they are printing shots, but I am practicing as many different photographic & processing styles as I can during my 365 project so I gave it a try. :) http://www.photoshopessentials.com/photo-editing/sharpen-high-pass/ explains high pass filters (more clearly than I can, LOL)
