"And it was only when I saw the broken pieces of the false self, that I finally realized it was just an illusion of the ego.
Then I just sat there, inhailing that scented fresh hair
through my newborn soul, contemplating a gracious magical sunset which seemed to last forever...
Nature does these things to us."
Technique: 20 second long exposure, ISO 100, f/11
Used a 3 stop soft ND grad for the sky and a 9 stop Hoya ND 400 with custom white balance which created quite a strong magenta-casted sky with blue toning in the water. This is a frequent occurence with this filter, which I often like. I further tweaked color and contrast in Adobe Camera Raw and applied some dodge/burning in Photoshop, with final sharpnening
in the resized low resolution file.
