Albion on Sea

From Jill and I, 'Paul' hope you all had Happy Holidays! :-)
As its now midwinter, I thought it might be nice to revisit the summer,
last August on a balmy evening on England's Eastborne beach at sunset.
One good thing about post-processing is its always possible to go back and redo images with your new skills and textures, and I must admit I don't do it enough!

So armed with our new Flypaper Autumn Painterly and last Summer's Painterly Set,
I happily came across this unprocessed image.
Firstly to zap up the colours a little I used the new Nik 4
From now on I'll also try to include my NiK colour settings, and here's the first!

To get a nice green tone in the blue sky, I used Nik 4
Bi color filters no.1 (yellow brown) @18% Opacity, 100% Blend.
At this stage I also removed text on the red signs and blurred the guys face,
with an eye to selling the image without a release, this saves loads of later re-processing!

Orris - Soft Light @ 100% blue at top cleaned up with noise and dust
Stonehenge - Vivid Light @ 20% over sky area only
Pans Sky - Soft Light @ 65% over sky area mostly
Ambergris - Hard Light @ 17%

I love how the textures have added richness and depth to this one Paul, it was already a great shot, but it's even better now. Well done!

Love the textures! I have them all and use them regularly. How about some more edges.
