Nishiki-hama at Night

Nishiki-hama at Night

5.  Take pictures on the beach(es) (preferably without ruining my camera), and at midnight on the beach

Ok, so it wasn’t exactly midnight but close enough.  And I didn’t ruin the camera.

The original.

The original.

Did a lot of post editing.  Increased the exposure by about two stops, lowered sharpness, adjusted color, even played with the curves a little to make sure that the moon wasn’t too bright.  Love the raw.  I’m not as pro at editing it yet, but it’s actually way easier to do than just straight jpeg.

Not sure where the lights are in the distance.  It’s not Fukuoka.  It’s not Tsushima.  It’s not other parts of Iki.  It’s like a big mystery.
