Night rides down the sky
Breaking the self imposed rule of not more than 5 minutes in Photoshop; this took about 25 minutes to go from two raw files of exactly the same scene, three whole stops apart. The darker shot forms the sky and all the shadow; the lighter shot forms the highlight detail in the rocks and some of the water. So in some senses you might say that this is an HDR image, but I prefer to think of it as an illustration ;-)
There is quite a bit of noise in the sky - I suspect this is due to my fail as a photographer - yes I know all about NR, but there is a limit before my patience runs out.
Anyways: Monkstone point, between Tenby and Saundersfoot, Pembrokeshire, South Wales, UK. - Quite a trek to get there... and a lot of steps
Notes: Sigma 10-20mm, B+W ND110 ten-stop filter. ACR for levels; Two layer composite image, Adjustment layers for brightness, contrast, vibrance, Overlay layers for tone, 3 different masked High-pass sharpened layers for texture. PS crop,black frame.
Seriously, you gotta View on black via Hivemind (prefered), or click on the image if you're not so fussed.
