[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken last month. I envisioned this shot to be like this, but the circumstance was not even remotely like this. So I turn to PS. hahaha!

In PS, I selected the sky, feathered it, and added a warm photo filter. I then increased its saturation and adjusted exposure through curves.

I also sharpened selectively a bit before posting.

Thanks and cheers!

The colors in this picture are bold and vivid. I like the contrast between the gold and blue. The boat is placed nicely in the frame. Nice work.
Best Regards,

Hi Pierre,
Just two key clours in this shot, and what a magnificent outcome. Does look like the sky's turned to gold. Wonderful piece.

Beautiful shot mate! Amazing use of light, the way it captures the guy in the boat as well as colouring the sky is terrific.
Well composed

Hi Pierre,
Love the colors in this composition. Exactly the kind of scene I miss from the Philippines. This is well composed. Danilo
