30 Limited Edition

Maui, Hawai'i, USA.

I was not alone in my waiting for the sunset on this beautiful beach in Maui, after a long winding drive from Hana: two fishermen were going around their business ignoring my camera and the beautiful sunset behind them. Standing on the beach behind the tripod, it felt like I was literally transported inside a magnificent painting: this is precisely what I aimed to recreate in post-processing, by blending two exposures (one for the sky and one for the foreground) and shifting the colors towards more saturated primaries, away from the more natural tones of the original scene. The rocks in the foreground direct the eye towards the two fishermen still minding their own business.

The highly irregular horizon on the left and the fisherman right across the horizon, where I wanted to keep good shadow detail, prevented me from using a standard graduated filter to bring the sky exposure back in check, calling for manual luminosity blending workflow back at home. I finished up the blending mask manually to highlight the contour of the hawaiian and his fishnet. 

"All my images are created by me: Fine Art prints represent the goal of my art and craft. Each print is a labor of love and a work of art that will beautify and energize virtually any space in your home. I take extreme pride in preparing each print personally.

There is a huge difference in viewing photographs on a computer display versus seeing fine art prints in person; only the prints show the light, depth, texture, and delicate nuances of my images and the materials on which they are printed."
