Dual tone in long exposure picture

I want to share this picture with you. This was taken in Menorca island 2 week ago. An incredible island for landscape and night photography.

I used 2 filters during the exposure:

  • ND 10 stops
  • NDG 3 stops

I’ve done a edition with very few modules.
You will see that there is a brightest area in the water due to some foam that where there. So I’ve used the retouch module to erase it (not very fine).
I want to see what you able to do with this.

Such a beautiful photo, and so well shot! Just immediately after opening it is stunning. It does realy need very few things to be done, probably the respect is the most important thing to have in mind… I really love it! Congrats!

My take:
dt 3.7.0 beta

Maybe a bit far from the true colors but I tried to meet color harmonies.
btw I like the spot of foam as it is
Used only two instances of color balance RGB and a bit of contrast equalizer in dt 3.6.1

Wow… didn’t saw yours before… We arrived to a very very similar edition from two different programs!
That proves, probably, that the best program is just the one you know better!

Beautiful image Lander! I have a lifelong freind living on Majorca, would love to visit…
I really like this edit Thomas! The clouds really pop and the ocean looks like glacier melt.
