Seaweed rope

Seaweed rope I like the dreamy diffused glow of this image. It was shot down in Inchadony Beach a few weeks back. Howto: First of all, I had to straighten the horizon because it was at a precarious angle. I used two layers, I saturated the colours slightly in the bottom layer to bring out […]

Seaside Wall and Rocks
