Dreams of the Sea

Although initially this may seem a casual snapshot, in fact it's been an exercise in extreme control - not a single pixel has been left to chance here. An assistant threw gravel at the subject until the ripples on the water and reflections came out exactly how i wanted them - just enough texture to stand out, while maintaining the silent silky feel of the seawater.

Part of a series of photographs shot for a close friend, images of aquatic dissolution, peace in drowning and strength in human creations left to decay by water are intended here.

No crop, cloning of sensor dust and a few distracting specks of dirt on the water, contrast curve adjustment, desaturation with partial blue filter simulated via channel mixer, duotone conversion with a custom sepia curve (using Pantone Warm Grey 7CV), mild dodging and burning, small increase in vibrance, resize, sharpen.

As always, prints are available at [link].
