Cayucos State Beach Clouds (California)Check how photo looked straight from the camera and how it was processed: http://goo.gl/pufZ4u
Processing: Digital Blending with Lminosity Masks
Bracketing: 3 shots (-1, 0, +1 )
Cayucos is the run-down town along California State Route 1 between Morro Bay and San Cambria. There is nothing special about it except beautiful beach with the amazing coastal views in both directions (south and north)
During my California coastal drives I always plan short stops at Cayucos, long enough for the a quick launch at the town’s beach and for taking some seascape photographs.
I took featured photo from Cayucos Pier which provides incredible view to Morro Bay Rock. Unfortunately, the pier is in process of being rebuilt at this point it it will take couple of years until I can take another photograph from it.
SHOOTING AND PROCESSING
Since light was not extreme, I took only 3 bracketed shots on tripod (FEISOL Tournament CT-3442). Originally I was planning to use Photomatix processing but at the very last moment I changed my mind and used luminosity masks blending in Photoshop
