Kelanang's Story - The Beauty in Sorrow

Assalamualakum and good evening everyone. Hope you guys having a great Saturday yeah. Here’s my new upload and again, it was from Pantai Kelanang, Banting. This shot was taken earlier on January this year, on a sunset outing with few friends. If I’m not mistaken it was my first sunset hunting on 2012. But not much of a luck on that day as it was cloudy and dark clouds were all over the place. So I were only able to play with long exposures like this shot.

Tech spech: This is a single shot which I took in RAW as always. I used a 3 stops GND, a 10 stops ND filter and a Circular Polarizer for this shot. On the post-processing, I did few tweaks to give it some ‘sorrow’ mood on the top part of the image like reducing the brighness, playing with saturation. adjusting the contrast, some dodging and burning and of course, sharpening and reducing the noise for few times. This is because of the long exposures of 90 seconds, my so called entry level camera cannot stand the heat and produce so many hot pixels.
