Sunset On The Caloosahatchee
This was shot at some little park on the Caloosahatchee River. It’s usually crowded with people enjoying the river and the park. Luckily the shore wasn’t being fished so I setup my tripod and took a few shots of the sun setting in the distance.
I used my 15mm Voigtlander to get this shot. I really wanted the covered pier on the right to be in the frame. I also wanted to capture both shores because the sun reflecting on the buildings on the left to be included. That’s where the 15mm lens comes in handy.
I did the usual curves and dodge/burn adjustments for local light. Then it was time to mask in various bits that I wanted. The sky got one mask and the shore another. I knew I wanted to keep the image warmer so I added another mask in for hue and saturation along with a bit of polarization.
