Postal Sunset

This is another sunset over the Caloosahatchee River in Fort Myers. I was setup on the riverwalk that runs along the river doing one of the many sunset photos I managed to take while I was there.

I really liked how the pylons framed the image. There is enough detail there to let your mind fill in the blanks but it’s dark enough that it doesn’t distract from the focal point of the image.

Editing wise I went with faux-HDR if that is a thing. I wanted the water to pop so I ran it through Aurora HDR and then masked that bit into the image. Then I went ahead and bumped the hue/saturation in the sky along with a polarization filter. Normally I leave that alone but ended up masking in bits there to keep things in balance. Then I spent some quality time removing the noise from the sky then called it done.
