Rocks at Sunset

Daily photo - Rocks at sunset

Today I'd like to share one more sunset photo from Puerto Aventuras, Mexico (I took so many of them there...). I really liked shape of these rocks.

In this case I applied slightly different processing than normally. Although I captured as many as 9 bracketed exposures I decided to use only 3 brightest ones. I opened them in Photomatix Pro 5 two times and each time I used slightly different settings (but each time I used Fusion/Real-Estate processing method). With one image I focused on water and sky and with the other - on the rocks. Then I blended both resulting images in Photoshop CC and increased contrast and saturation a little bit.
