"Oceanic Dreams" - Oregon

Exclusive Limited Edition of 45

A very long exposure during a brilliant sunset creates an impressionistic rendering of the California ocean scene. A 3 stop Singh-ray reverse graduated neutral density filter was used to hold back the highlights in the sky as the sun exploded from underneath the marine layer. An advanced Lab color separation/variation technique was used to help bring out the color variation. A slight Lab color blurring was used to reduce the color contrast (without effecting detail) and compliment the ethereal mood. A slight vignette was used to help draw attention to the main subject matter and light.
