Of the many images I took at Pfeiffer Beach, this is the one I like best.
As much as anything, it is an exercise in the use of Adobe Lightroom.
The original image was pretty bland to the point of being monochromatic. I used just about every input available in the program to get this result. I darkened the lights, increased shadow, goosed the vibrance to the max (as opposed to saturation which I left alone). Other than the small blowout of the cloud, the result was impressive.
