Santa Barbara Island Dream
Santa Barbara Island Dream

One of the nicer spring days in 2016, I got out to this site just in time for some decent light, the actual sunset was pretty dark due to the fog later just over the ocean. This is my first serious try with manual exposure blending using layer masks in photoshop. I also used a low opacity duplicate layer to create the dreamy blur called the Orton Effect.

I didn't have time to hike to the west side of the island this evening for the sunset, so just went down to the mouth of the nearest canyon to housing. I used a 3 stop ND filter to get the slight water blur.

Lucky to have the time to drive out and see it, due to travel constraints, wasn't able to get here for the early or late sun hours, maybe next time!
