This is a great shot :thumbup: . I am really curious as to how you processed it as it looks a lot like a painting.

Thanks guys.

This was all done in Lightroom CC. To start, I shot this about 1 1/2 to 2 hours prior to sunset. The overall tonal range wasn't that drastic though the overall ambient light appeared much brighter camera left than it did camera right. I also shot at slower shutter speeds to get some softness to the water without going all milky.

Three bracketed images were passed through LR's HDR processor then further developed with LR. To be more specific; I lowered clarity a touch to soften the image. I then used the exposure tone sliders to reduce the overall tonal range some more. I played with the colors a bit to bring out the blues in the sky and the yellow in the sand and some green for the trees. Finally I added a white vignette to add to the painterly effect.

Hope these notes help.
