Pale Sea, Southport

I’ve been enjoying using my long exposure filter when the tide is in at Southport, but despite the sea being in, the colours on the beach aren’t always appealing. That’s why it’s sometimes necessary to alter the colour to achieve a pleasing image. In this shot I increased the blue in the image, and decreased the saturation to compensate. This has resulted in a high key image with a hint of colour. I hope you enjoy it!
