Sunset well

I had the wonderful chance to capture this image of Thor’s Well on the Oregon coast. I’ve been honing my photoshop blending and luminosity masking skills. Any cc is very welcome

Hi

Brilliant image.
I have just taken out the slight bow of the horizon.
Then I used a program called "Contrast Master" by Plugin Site. It is a PS plugin but I think it is also available as standalone.

Perhaps I have overdone it a bit, please let me know but I think it is just about right. And I have sharpened the image a wee bit.
The changes are all very minor.

Cheers

I actually really like your additions, I didn’t even see the little horizon bulge when I wa processing.

I would chase a little more detail in the (foreground) rocks, try the brush tool or levels.
Beautiful shot, you can only make it better.

You captured a really nice scene. I would have maybe shot from a slightly lower perspective and included a little bit more of the rocks on the bottom leading into the image. You also could boost the exposure on the foreground a little bit.

Hot damn.. that is a beautiful shot! I have never been to Thor's Well myself. But now I might have to make the trip. The additional contrast is actually very cool. It makes it look like there is some sort of massive storm on the horizon.
