I took this long exposure shot in Akcakoca/Turkey.Post Processing:* 3 bracketed exposures, 1 stop apart and centered at 15 seconds, blended manually in Photoshop CS6. (All RAW files.)* Sharpened with ''High Pass'', ''Unsharp Mask'' (to incrase the local contrast) and ''Freaky Amazing Detail'' tecniques. (The last tecnique is quite powerfull sharpening tecnique that I first saw it in Calvin Hollywood's Photoshop blog page, who is a very talented German photographer.)* Noice reduction with Gaussian Blur (1.8 pixels.) and masked the edges with Luminosity Masking tecnique. Also Nik Software's Photoshop plugin ''Define 2.0'' used for noise reduction.* Some curves ajdustments to increase the contrast.* Saturated in LAB Color mode.* Nik Software's Photoshop plugin Color Efex Pro 4 is also my favorite software for color adjustments.
