Without a doubt, the subject matter is messy—too many destracting details and probably not a clear subject matter. But, this scene it not about the specifics—it’s about the light. I saw the golden light on the shrimp boat and the blues of the water and sky. Two great complementary colors is what I saw and what I tried to convey in the image.
Camera settings: Nikon D3, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 shot at 135mm, ISO 200, f/11 and 1/80th of a second.
Lightroom—Set black and white points, added clarity and increased contrast.
Photoshop—used spot healing to clean-up various ugly spots and added saturation to blue and orange.
