The Low Tide Smooths

I was getting creative by the time I took this one off the beach. I had experimented before with dropping my tripod almost to ground level and firing off some shots just to change the perspective. I think with this image it really works.

I really wanted the rocks to be dominate in the foreground while making the sky and water look smoother. While I’m not 100% happy with how I smoothed out the sky its vastly improved over the original sky I had. It took lots of masking to finally get it to where I was happy enough with it. I honestly lost count of the number of layers and masks I did to get it.

    The photo is very nice. I think the rocks stand out in the photo. My focus enjoys all and then goes to what I think is the true beauty and that would be the magnificent colors in the sky. The shimmer on the water is also stands out. Thailand truly does have beautiful beaches and skies.
