April Foolishness: Pic 6

April 06, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

On Day 6 (Monday) I hit Waiake Beach to see what I can find. 

It's on the Tor that I finally get the shot I like. The only problem is I neglected the tide, and had to wade through the sea back to the beach. Soaked boots and lower legs. Not a smart move. SONY DSC

My second idea was to convert the pic into a duotone image.  This also appealed to me, it seemed to have a mood about it that the colour version lacked.

I didn't time the photo so well for the incoming tide. There was a bit of wading through the current to reach the beach safely.

The shot has been converted to this duotone style. The image is first made into a black and white, then the shadows and highlights tinted different tones.

The outtake of the session was one of my first shots, from the other end of the beach.
