Golden Cove - Palos Verdes

Golden Cove sunset

Don't really need another title other than the name of this cove and you can see why it's called that. When that golden hour light hits the cliffs, the warmth just radiates off them. This is a blend of 3 exposures, one for the water and 2 for the sky. For some reason my land exposure shifted and I couldn't get it lined up in post, so I spent more time then I cared to masking back in the water. A person was also walking through the frame during this sequence but an easy way to mask out people is to take multiple shots with the same exposure. Layer each shot in photoshop and mask over the people using another layer where they had already moved. This is a much easier technique then trying to clone stamp your photo to death and it's a handy tool when you know there will be tons of people walking through your shot.
