A few weeks ago, I posted a shot of the Pigeon Rocks in front of Beirut’s corniche, promising at the time that I will post some more from the same location. The shot below is taken from a different vantage point, showing the Pigeon Rocks as well as the corniche and the buildings overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
It’s a long exposure photo to allow the sea to flatten. I also used a little trick in Photoshop which I haven’t used in a while. I wanted to get the sky to look a bit bluer so I duplicated the original photograph and changed the blend mode of that layer to Multiply. Most of the times this will get the sky to look darker and you can control that darkness by adjusting the transparency level of that layer.
