About the Image(s)

Crystal Cove, Newport, California

Canon 6D Mark II, 1/500 sec at f/8, ISO 100 @ 88 mm (EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM)

Originally, the scene was not really photogenic. The coast was too crowded. But, I have to submit three fresh images of seascapes with specific subjects for my PSA projects. So I shot this scene last week. I thought the curvy shore lines and the walking people on the boardwalk can be a subject of the scene. Therefore, I purposely darkened the whole crowded coast and explore the golden hour shore lines by highlighting them with luminosity mask. I composed two bracketed image here to get appropriate color as I wish.
