The Sea and Sky

High key photography - The Sea and Sky

This high key photograph was shot one morning in 2010 at Changi Beach. It was a hazy morning and the contrast between the sea and the sky was high. I wanted both the boats and the aeroplane, but the sky was too bright, hence the compromise to lose details on both. The boats were almost in silhouette as I had to take some exposure of the sky too. Just in case you ask, no I did not have my graduated ND filter with me that morning. Original photo was shot in color and converted to black and white in Adobe Lightroom 4.

Here is another one.
