I really like, for the most part, how this shot turned out, though it's not without some problems. Processing wise, after I got it back from PSE into Aperture I went and adjusted exposure and set the black and white points. That sun was a little blown out, probably still is, but it's the sun. What are you going to do? I did a little capture sharpening and some noise control. Then the heavy lifting was done in +Topaz Labs Clarity using the Sunset preset in the Landscape group. From there I did a little tweaking to get things the way I wanted, then off to Detail to get a little more detail popping. I wish I could say I had planned on the composition turning out this way, with the sun near center with a nice trail of golden light leading to the bottom of the frame and centered by Trinidad Head on the left and Pewetole Island on the right, but honestly it was luck. Or skill that's become second nature. But my money is on luck.What I don't like and will try to fix is an inherent problem with a moving subject (the surf) and a sweeping panorama; things don't line up.
