A couple strolling over the rocks at St Ives, Cornwall; 27 Sept 2012.
Technique: D700 with 70-300 Nikkor lens at 300mm; 400 ISO; this picture was produced by dragging the midpoint tab on Levels & Curves quite radically to the right, which has had the effect of darkening the image’s darker tones – in fact it has reduced them to black. The paler tones are relatively unaffected – and I’ve given them a lot of warmth in Capture NX2, to boost their colours.
Reality? Definitely not! But do I like it? Yes!
