A MUST VIEW LARGE
I think processing this image this way…to me…enhances how the scene really was to me..(disregarding the colour of cause). The winds were up around 20 knots, and I was huddled behind a rock taking shelter from the sea spray and gusting winds. With tripod legs buried deep in the sand and barefoot as the waves came rushing in…the rich colours don’t really depict the moment…only the spectacle of that moment….
What I’m trying to say is taking the shot was a lot more ‘RAW’…standing in the swell, wind blasting, spray covering the filters…by removing the colour, tonemapping to enhance the detail, followed by converting to monotone in Silver Efex pro then adding a creamtone preset in lightroom, I feel this captures the moment more as I remember it….
