Los Angeles Sunset

In El Porto beach, California

Larger.

 

ISO 100, 10mm, f6.3, 1/30.

 

Double -processed in ACR. The top part has a stronger curve for contrast, and the botton has a softer curve so that the highlights don't get blown. Then blended using a gradient mask. Also increased vibrance and color temperature a bit (from the auto camera setting).

 

In PS used Transform/Distort to push in the bottom-left corner to straighten the lifeguard tower. Also lowered the top so that when I cropped I didn't have to crop off the beautiful cloud on the top right. Finally cloned out a really large trashcan on the right, and the oil tankers on the horizon.
