My Top Summer Sunset

Shot:
The sunsets over a marina in Monmouth Beach, NJ. This was the top sunset I was able to photograph this summer.

Technique:
The original shot was taken with a 10 Stop ND and a 3 Stop Gradient ND to smooth out the water and cut out some of the highlights. I did two different edits on the image seen below and then merged them together using an overlay blend in photoshop to create the final image.
