This is one of the rare times I digitally intervene like this in a photo.
The image was taken with the Plaubel Makina 67 using Kodak Portra 160VC film. Both a polarizer and B+W 110ND filters were used to produce a seconds exposure under a bright sun.
Although the shot is during noon and the light is harsh I like the look of the photo. What I didn’t like was the presence of buildings. I normally don’t erase anything in my photos (with the exception of some cables which is I consider it to be a very minor intervention). I prefer to document a scenery without creating a virtual image. But in this case, I opted for some serious post processing because I wanted a pure landscape look. The huge size of the scanned frame allowed me to easily erase buildings without leaning any signs and this is a seascape I would like to see printed.
As the tile states, some times you just have to use the tools that digital post processing offers you !!
