~ Fanta-sea ~

Uploaded: August 12, 2012


The ocean is what dreams are made of.
I had two images of the same scene.
One captured a bit of wave, the other captured the gull, so I merged the two.
Applied a vortex, flare & rainbow in SPE & made other adjustments/vignette in LR.
I will share original image.

Exif: F Number: 11, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/400 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 18.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 20D
