Driving Along the South Shore of O’ahu (Hawaii)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/driving-along-south-shore-oahu-hawaii/

The South Shore coastal drive is probably the most scenic drive on Oahu island of Hawaii. The main reason for that is that its views are not obstructed by the trees and it runs very closely to the shore without taking you inland.

During my first visit to O’ahu, I drove along the drive, at least, a few dozen of times because at the end of the drive was located the famous Sandy Beach where I learned how to bodysurf and almost broke my back.

Good times.

SHOOTING & PROCESSING

I noticed this spot the very first time I drove along the South Shore. But for a couple of days, I could not take any pictures there because there was no legal parking around with the busy traffic and police cars always patrolling the popular tourist destination.

The day I took the featured photo, I knew I had only a couple of minutes so I prepared my camera and tripod and kept it unfolded in the car. I parked at the side of the road and took a couple of sets of bracketed shots. Finally, I took 8 individual shots with the goal to create a long exposure effect later in Photoshop.

In 3-4 minutes I was on my way.

First, I applied Lightroom preset Point Lobos from my Landscape Collection and after I used TOOLKIT to boost colors and contrast.

The Lightroom Preset Editing Formula: Point Lobos (13, 16, 20, 31)

Next, I took 8 individual shots and using the technique I described in details in Long Exposure Photography Without a Tripod tutorial, I blended them together in Photoshop to create a long exposure effect.

Finally, I combined together the main image I created in the first step with the long exposure image from the second step in Photoshop.
