I shot this when I was in Thailand last year. I have so many images I never published because I just didn’t know what to do with them. I have no exact idea where I was when I shot this. I started at Wongamat Beach and just started walking taking images with my camera.
It’s slightly weird that I keep dipping into my archives because I have a huge volume of images I have shot and just haven’t touched. I just think as my editing grows and I can push an image more I am inclined to see what I ignored previously to see what I can do with these images I just never published for one reason or another.
Editing this was straightforward. I did my usual stuff in Lightroom and then added my curves adjustment and some dodging and burning in Photoshop. I did tone down the greens in the image because they went nuclear and I think that’s from the Olympus sensor which seems to do that. I was going to make it all sorts of colorful and load a ton of layers and filters but I liked it how it was, simple and as it really was. Sometimes I’ll play with my world and make it look like I want it to and sometimes I think the world did a job better than me.
