Shot Notes

This is Dahab in Egypt. To process this image I applied a separate curve for the sky and the sea. I wanted to add some vignette so I created a new layer with a Radial Gradient Fill and set the blend mode to Overlay. This darkened the edges nicely but it put the focus in the middle of the shot and not on the subject. To fix this I adapted the Radial Gradient Fill Layer. I used a soft brush set to 3% and painted black or white as on the layer as if it was a mask. Finally I used a bit of split toning to add some more colour.
