Great Image, Love the sky and the colours

Behind The Lens

Location
Back Bay Reserve, Virginia Beach, Virginia
Time
Golden Hour
Lighting
You see what you get.
Equipment
Nikon D300; Tokina 12-24mm. Hand held.
Inspiration
You see the colors right?
Editing
I used a technique called "Orton". I made a copy layer and applied Gaussian blur to the copy and increased the exposure to a 'screen' level then set the opacity to about 30% and flattened the image. This technique makes colors look richer and the image looks a bit more like a fantasy. Too much Orton looks terrible to me so I set it to about 30% opacity to avoid the weird dark shadows around dark objects.
In my camera bag
Nikon D300; Nikon 50mm f1.4 AIS;Nikon 50mm f1.8G; Nikon 85mm f1.8D; Nikon 35mm f1.8G DX; Tokina 12-24mm; Sigma 150mm f2.8; Manfrotto Tripod; LEE Big Stopper and assorted LEE adapter rings; Nikon SB 600 flash.
Feedback
Be there when the sun goes down and don't pack away your tripod like I did that day.
