About the Image(s)

I was shooting time lapse at this spot and took a photo also. This photo was taken at close and far focus with two shots. It was merged with the focus stack from LR+PS. And it was processed to remove the junks on the photo.
Th 8K Time Lapse video was made from 450 shots and was heavily post processed.

Thanks for clarifying. I assumed the processed version is the one in the upper right hand corner. Great job of merging and processing. You really brought out the colors of the sky and flowers. I also like how you brightened the image -- making everything pop. The composition is good, too. The pier and coastline really accent each other.   Posted: 04/08/2021 11:55:42

Nice timelapse. It now has a "like" and I would have left a comment full of questions, but...

I'll just agree with Mike on the colors and composition. I'd like to add that there is an implied line from the very dark trees to the pier that separates the "natural" from the very urban. For me, the car on the pier shows the scale of the scene better than anything else in it. If I were to suggest any changes it would be to clone out some of the more distant swimmers.

Good job on the image and the video.   Posted: 04/21/2021 23:16:13
