Ater visiting Prince Edward Island on many occasions in the last 10 years It was the first time I got to drive along the Eastern Shore of the island.
It looked different and unique compared to other parts of PEI. It has a high shore with view on Nova Scotia across the Northumberland Strait and the endless farm fields.
It was a pure driving photo trip experience. I was driving without any specific places to visit just trying to spot something interesting and beautiful. When I spotted this view I just stopped the car and took a couple of shots from the side of the road.
Shooting & Processing
I took 3 bracketed shots on a tripod (-1, 0, +1) as I usually do.
I used single RAW image editing in Lightroom. I described the process in Lightroom Rapid Editing System for Landscapes.
But this time I introduced the editing twist to Rapid Editing.
Finally, I loaded both versions to Photoshop as individual layers and blended them together using the Transparency Masks and the Brush Tool.
