Whangamata Sunset #1

Whangamata Sunset #1

Beach grass at sunset, looking away from the setting sun to the horizon. Taken at Whangamata.

This shot owes itself to Fred Miranda’s Velvia Vision. The original shot can be seen here (resized and compressed for web and comparison purposes). Admittedly there is a crap lot of potatoshop stuff going on here as well, like: crop, straighten (lens correction), duplicate layer (gaussian blur overlay), shadow/highlight adjustment, 55mm Filters (ND Grad and Roscoe Calcolor), sharpen (focal blade) and noise reduction.


  • Aperture: ƒ/4
