The Layers

Layers of Rocks

I’m sorry for another very short post, but I’m still very busy in the last few days.

Landscape photos aren’t always about showing wider picture or whole scene. Sometimes it’s good to focus on some details, textures instead. And that’s what I did in this case. This image was taken in a beautiful Ponta de Sao Lourenco in Madeira island. And it’s so different from another image I took there! Instead of showing whole scene I chose just a small bit of it and photographed it through tele zoom lens.

And I’m really happy how this one turned out. There are a lot of lines, layers and nice color contrast. And besides that – fantastic textures.

Post-processing this image was super easy. Basically what I did was to increase contrast and colour saturation a little bit in Capture One. I also slightly cropped the image. And that’s all!
