It was just one of those ‘Feel Good’ kinda nights. The surf was right, the temperature was right and the sunset was just right. All in all everyone was feeling good.
These three images were edited in Lightroom CC then finished off in Photoshop CC using the Lumenzia luminosity masking panel. I was also feeling good learning to use the power of the luminosity mask to precisely isolate areas of thee images and apply edits without causing the tell tale halo effect normally seen when trying to lighten/darken foregrounds and sky. I’m still new at this whole luminosity thing but I can certainly see the benefits and how it can take my own image editing up a level.
