Sunset in Destin, Florida


Sunset in Destin, Florida - image 1 - student projectUsing the skills I learned from Class 1, I chose this photo of myself in the water because I like how it shows the example of using the rule of thirds.
The original photo was much brighter, so I chose to bring out the colors of the water along with the sunset. I made myself a silhouette to keep the water and sunset as the main focus. Using the color mix setting I increased the colors of both the water and the sky. The original photos had buildings (quite small, but I found to be distracting) along the horizon, so I used the app Retouch to remove the buildings. I am open to feedback. Sunset in Destin, Florida - image 2 - student project
