Post-processing tips

  • Pay attention to halo artifacts – the building is much darker than the sky so there is a chance they will get introduce around that area
  • There are small ripples in water (especially in darker images which were taken with shorter exposure) so you might need to use deghosting tool. In this case using automatic deghosting should do the trick and remove most of them
  • With such beautiful colors in the sky it’s easy to oversaturate the image – so keep that in mind
