As I mentioned when I posted body art #1, Jason and I had gone down to St. Annes to photograph the pier at sunset. As you have already seen though, we ended up shooting a variety of portraits first, but as the evening wore on we got our sunsets too.
I'll be posting four of these over the coming weeks: shot between 6.34pm and 8.09pm on the 11th of this month. All of them feature the old pier at St. Annes, and all are shot from much the same angle, but the sky changed so quickly and dramatically that all four are worth posting.
In terms of the post-production, and as you can see from the original, I didn't do a great deal to this one other than to bump up the contrast (using a Curve) and the saturation (using a masked curve and the Hue/Saturation tool).
Jason's first shot of this scene is here:
