Love the simplicity of the composition; sea and sky and how Alcatraz dominates; it conjures up endless stories of the prison left to your imagination.

I pushed your story of the orange hour in LR with a ND filter warming the color a bit and a slight re-crop to make it less centered and add a bit of tension.   Posted: 06/20/2021 16:22:29

This is such a crazy coincidence. I took that image on May 31st 2021!
I also like Judy's modification.   Posted: 06/23/2021 10:51:58

Hi Pierre, when did you take this picture? I was on the same spot last month. The climate was so windy and there are not many people there. So I rushed back to my car without taking any picture.

Btw, I like the upgrade done by Judy. This warming color just strengthened the dreamy mood.   Posted: 06/23/2021 04:17:52
