Victor,
Excellent photograph by all measures. Eye and brain candy to be sure. Thank you for posting it. Please post a 'how I did it' when you get a minute.
Is this the shot as framed, cropped? Dawn, noon? BnW from the onset, BnW now?

Thank you both!

MrCliff,
It's kind of funny, because I was about to delete this shot, but thought i would give it a try.

This is the original image:
Image

It was a late afternoon with nice light and unfortunately I haven't brought my tripod. Therefore I tried to hold my camera as steady as possible. Some shot's with great success and some with less. This image was one with less success ;) .

And on to the PP

1. Opened the image in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 and converted it to B&W. (I LOVE this program for B&W conversions!!!)
Applied contrast and softening.
Adjustet highlights, midtones and shadows.

2. Opened the image in Adobe Photoshop CS6
Cleaning up and removing bubbles, seaweed and other stuff...

3. Final touch-up's in Lightroom 4
Local sharpening of the sand and adjusting color temp. (yes it does have an effect on B&W).

Nice I like the cloud movement. Did you use a filter ? What length was the exposure?

Thanks, I believe that this was done without a filter based on the exposure length (I don't remember really), I did use 2 stop ND filter later that evening for exposures of 4 and 6 minutes but the clouds were not to my liking in those shots.

So this particular one was

81 sec, 55mm f16 @ ISO 100
:)

Thanks :)
WB is set a little higher that natural and it may have a small saturation boost, I don't remember. Not a lot of editing. It was a great evening :D

The details are quite stunning, and the fading eyes have a 'romantic' feel. WoW, very nice one? What lens/ISO/f-stop/shutterspeed did u use?
