This was a photo I used in my Ohau video, but this version is a little different.
In the video I enhanced the contrast and added vibrance. This version had similar enhancements and I added a tilt-shift adjustment that changed the focus more to the beach.
No matter how you take a photo it’s almost impossible to truly capture what you saw in person. So, like writing, you can change it some so the feeling, the “truth” of the experience comes through. Even if it’s not the “real” truth that you saw, you can try to bring the experience and feeling to the viewer.
What feelings or thoughts does this photo bring out in you?
