Photographer's Note

Hi all,
it has been more than a long while since I last uploaded my work here on TE.
We spent Easter weekend in Co. Donegal, near Dunbeg. It's place with many stunning views - high mountains, deep valleys, long beaches and steep clifs.
This shot was taken from the top of Horn Head pointing south. The contrast difference was good 6 stops so I used combination of 0.6 hard edge grad and 0.45 hard edge to keep the sky reasonable whilst keeping maximum details on the cliffs. CPL was also used to get rid of reflection on water surface. Last but not least, sturdy tripod was a must, it was quite blowy on the summit.
Regarding PP, I enhanced blacks to bring more contrast into the scene and blue color was saturated a step.

In the curent environment when HDR is becoming a favorite techinque for many good photographers, in this shot I wanted to demonstrate that "good" shots are possible without excessive manipulation.

Kind regards,
