…must be a feeling that many boaters have when heading out into the Atlantic.
I started processing this shot by cropping some of the ocean out at the bottom and then since the scene was basically devoid of color, decided to convert to B+W. I then added 3 graduated filters to darken the sky and the water, then I used the adjustment brush to brighten both the boat and wake. I utilized the spot removal tool to eliminate several birds in the scene and finished up with a slight vignette.
Shot at f/4, 1/350 sec., iso 400 and 113mm
