Proud to release yet another print from Maui titled *Pacific Dream*. I was very fortunate to be able to shoot at this breathtaking location in Oahu. With only 2 days to spare on this island, we scouted for the best possible locations. The time of day is not what photographers refer to as the Golden Hour of photography, but who cares . The photo turned out pretty well with a challenging processing technique. I hand-blended four different exposures with custom masks to reflect the true scene and what the camera could not do.
Nikon 16-35mm f/4 at 26mm and f/16
Exposures: 1/4sec, 1/8 sec, 1/15sec, 1/30sec
Induro Tripods AT-114
Photoshop CS6 for blending of multiple exposures and curves adjustment layers.
I am planning on writing another tutorial about blending multiple images into one single image as I have done here. My previous tutorial about the process of developing a single RAW file drives quite some traffic to my site http://www.andredistel.com/2013/12/luminosity-masks-workflow-tutorial-in-landscape-photography/
