Another one from last nights eastbourne walk but just before it started getting dark.

I set up this shot when two surfboarders where coming past the beacon and I Knew I wanted to get a shot of them either side but I didn't have time to put in my ND Grad and relied on processing power to bring back the detail in the sky, quite pleased with the result.

I used the High pass filter on this shot and my previous shot but not sure if it's doing what I want it to, can't make up my mind if it's too strong with the sharpness.

Will rty it a bit more but play with the settings to see what happens, I might venture back to unsharp mask as it's done me proud up till now.

The only other thing is the beacon is slightly off centre which is annoying as it plays with the perspective of the picture making it look slightly odd.

On a previous picture I took of this beacon I moved it on photoshop to improve things but I don't like doing that really so left it as it was.

please feel free to leave comments.

Thanks for your continued support of my stream.
