I was really short of time this week, but thought I would try something new (to me) in Photoshop. I have used my clowns before so went for a different look this time using "Out of Bounds" as my technique. I'm sure I could improve given more time, but am reasonably happy with the result I have achieved. I added noise to the background as I was getting banding and couldn't remove it any other way I tried.
I had originally planned to take a picture from under the pier, but the tide was against me as there was 4 feet of water where I wanted to stand, so I went along the beach a little to find a different vantage point, I used a 10 stop filter to try to get some movement in the clouds and flatten the water, but it was just too bright.
The pier in the picture was originally 3,787 feet long, but most of it got destroyed in a storm in 1978.
I have featured the pier head in another challenge (week 2)
I had great plans for this week, but other events kept getting in my way, so this is an unplanned image. I do like the textures in the wood, this side table lives in the garden through all weathers, and shows it's age, but that is it's attraction
I took this using my iPhone but edited in Color efex pro 4
