Camera: Canon EOS-60D
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
Location: Cape Arago

Took this at Cape Arago as the sun was beginning to set. Gorgeous area, have several outtakes and other photos for this trip, but, unfortunately not a lot of applicable contests during my week working on the coast. Sigh. LOL.

This one was very simple. took it, Altered the Highlights/Shadows/Saturation/Luminance and added a bunch of clarity in raw conversion. Created three layers and used Exposure Color Stretch on one of the new layers and Dramatic Portrait on the other. Altered the opacity on each layer to suit and voila.

Lovely "S" curve with the path and the beach. Beautiful lighting,
at either sunrise or sunset. That horizon. Undoubtedly you are perfectly
correct in the way it is framed, but it does 'read' downhill. Maybe just a slight uphill adjustment would make this even more impressive.

Slow ss would give different impact related to the title, imho.
