Here's a more detailed note from last night's post.
Shot after sunset, I was disappointed that the sunset was not as good as I was hoping. This was my first attempt at seascapes using a DSLR.
This one was probably shot just as a huge wave started to recede.
After taking several shots and reviewing the images, they appeared to be overexposed by half a stop so I underexposed by 2/3 of a stop. It turned out that the camera's reading was accurate (and my fault for relying too much on the bright LCD screen).
Post processing: Overexposed by 2/3 of a stop in PS Camera RAW. I wasn't satisfied with any of the white balance parameters so used Cloudy and increased the saturation by 10, and added 5 levels of magenta in Color Balance.
Although I really like the shot, the sky was a bit boring and dull. This would be probably look better with Velvia. I'll try again within this week.

so bernard, I did some extra work on CS to enhance the colors in the sky. I select the sky by lasso and used channel mixer to increase the reds. hope you like it.
