Photo Of The Moment - Tide Pools

Tide Pools, La Jolla, CA

When the tide rolls out, all the nooks and crannies in La Jolla are revealed.

Processing notes:

  • Single shot RAW file
  • Black & white points set in Aperture
  • Stylization in OnOne Perfect Effects: A gradient to reel in the sky, dynamic contrast to boost details, a little "Magic Forest" to punch up the algae, and finally a vignette.
  • Final touches of selective sharpening and definition in Aperture.
