The Pacific Ocean crashes against a rocky on the Big Island in Hawaii.  I love shooting ocean shots just after sunset when the warm colors of the sky play off beautifully with the cool colors in the surf.The colors that I saw on this particular evening were quite dramatic but what my camera recorded was a let down.  All that ocean spray and haze muted the saturation in my origirnal capture.  To fix this problem, I used Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4's Graduated Filter to punch up the yellow in my sky and bring back some of the blue in the ocean.  For a video tutorial on how I use Photoshop Lightroom's Graduated Filter to tune up this type of image see:
