About the Photograph

Nikon D800, Samyang 14 mm f/2.8 
30 sec, ISO 6400, f/2.8, 14 mm

I used one of my fine art presets (Stars II) to edit this and then enhanced the stars with one of my fine art actions (Stars Enhance).

Fine Art Actions

Finally after many hours of testing and working on my Action Collection, I'm happy to announce my new and shiny Fine Art Action Collection is ready! You can purchase yours through the Action page or click here.

There are four types of different actions in the Fine Art Action Collection. Styling actions are meant for editing the colors, contrast and atmosphere of the photograph. Graduated actions are for balancing the image and adding drama to the sky. Adjustment actions are for getting the fine detail of stars and milky way in your photographs and also to sharpen images. 

Here are couple of my favorite photographs edited with the Actions. For more info check out the Actions page. The Action Collection & Fine Art Presets are on sale for limited time!

I'm thrilled to show you another photo from the same night as my previous photograph: Divided. I had some fun in Yyteri, Finland walking down the beach alone, just mesmerized by the beauty of life. I tried to capture the beautiful sight I witnessed while sitting on the bench from a spectators perspective. Hope you enjoy it!

Post-processing 

For base edit I used my Fine Art Lightroom Preset: Landscape - Stars II. I also used Photoshop for the Milky Way with my upcoming Photoshop Action: Stars Enhance. Hopefully the Action pack will be ready in the next couple of weeks, still working on it to make it as good as possible.
