The Ocean...

Singing in the sunshine, laughing in the rain

Hitting on the moonshine, rocking in the grain

Ain't no time to pack my bag, my foots outside the door

Got a date, I can't be late, for the high hopes hailla ball.


Singing to an ocean, I can hear the ocean's roar

Play for free, play for me and play a whole lot more, more!

Singing about good things and the sun that lights the day

I used to sing on the mountains, has the ocean lost it's way......... here's to my fave band


Been A while since I got to my Progressive Stage Blending technique . Had the perfect setting... moving clouds, changing hues in the sky, tide coming in +++. This one is among my top favourites using this technique. I’ll share the single exposures below.


The sea and rocks generated thru a 5 exp tone mapped HDR – pretty quick to do. I then layered 3 different RAW images tuned thru ACR for – the flow of the waves and some natural tones on certain rocks. The sky comes from 3 stages of the sunset. Some curves, blending modes included. Will post the exposures below shortly
