Table Mountain seen from Bloubergstrand, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa.

3348'21.00"S, 1827'49.80"E

Taken at the 18mm end of the lens. I used a 3-stop graduated neutral density filter to hold back exposure in the sky. I might have used a 2-stop neutral density filter to increase exposure time.

Lightroom RAW conversion. Noise reduction, brightened parts of the image with a masked curves adjustment layer, increased contrast with a pair masked curves adjustment layers (one with luminosity blending mode), resize, sharpen and save for web.
