Golden Sands Sunset Lanzarote

The Shot


This was taken on the Playa Grande beach Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote at low tide. The camera used was a Sony A550 with a Sigma 10-20 Wide Angle Zoom at 10mm. 3 raw images 2EV spacing for an HDR. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.




Outputted in Photomatix to detail enhancer and saved as a tiff.




General adjustments in levels and curves to enhance. Layer masks used to exclude highlights and shadow areas from adjustments.


Second levels layer with layer mask to bring more detail from the shadows in the rock.


Hue/Saturation layer reds and yellows to slightly reduce saturation in Sunset and reflection.


Vibrance layer to enhance the blues in the sky a little


Spot healing brush with content aware to remove ghosts of people in the distance. Also to remove lamp posts on seafront


Noiseware Pro


Unsharp Mask
