Walking at the Bottom of the Sea (New Brunswick)

This is another shot from my trip to Atlantic Canada when I visited one of the most amazing places in the world, the Hopewell Rocks. Once again, during the low tide hours, I got to walk at the bottom of the sea. The tide fluctuation riches 14 meters vertically, making it the place of the highest tides in the world.

At the time when I took the featured shot, the water was not completely gone, making the beach muddy and wet.

SHOOTING & PROCESSING

In the summer months, the Hopewell Rocks can be extremely crowded making it a very challenging place to photograph. This time I was lucky, there were only a few people on the beach and I knew I could easily mask them in Photoshop later.

I took 3 bracketed shots on a tripod but used only middle exposure for editing.

I used Lightroom Rapid Editing for Landscapes, applying Point Lobos preset first from Landscape Collection and then used TOOLKIT adjustments.

Lightroom Editing Formula: Point Lobos (5, 9, 21, 31, 40)

Flying Over Lachine Lighthouse (Montreal)

I was lucky with this shot. It was not my intention to place the flying plane into my composition, I had no idea It was there. That afternoon I was more concentrating on testing brand new lens (Canon 70-200mm) and did not pay much attention to my surroundings. But when I started to process the featured photo in Lightroom I noticed a lucky accident. It does not happen very often but sometimes it does.

SHOOTING

I was shooting on a tripod entire afternoon, experimenting with the various focal lengths starting from 70mm and all the way to 200mm. I used a focal length of 118mm for this shot and since I had Canon 60D with cropped sensor, the actual value was about 177mm.

PROCESSING

Even though I took 3 bracketed shots I knew that I only needed one because the setting sun was completely covered by clouds and the scene sdid not have dynamic highlights.

I used Lightroom Preset based workflow. I applied Electric preset from my Landscape Preset Collection and adjusted Exposure using ToolKit adjustments.

In the final step, I did some cleaning and color correction in Photoshop.
