The Pacific Ocean crashes against a rocky on the Big Island in Hawaii. I love shooting ocean shots at sunset when the warm colors of the sky play beautifully with the cool colors in the surf.
The colors that I saw on this particular evening were quite dramatic but my original raw captures were a let down. All that ocean spray muted the rich colors that my eyes were seeing but that the camera didn't record. To fix this problem, I used Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Graduated Filter Tool to punch up the yellow in the sky and paint some of the blue back into the ocean.
