Water Water Everywhere #101 – Tide Out

A photograph of the harbour at Lynmouth in Devon

Camera Settings

Camera: Canon EOS 600D
Lens: Canon EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II
F/Number: f/8.0
ISO: 100

Focal Distance: 18 mm
Shutter Speed: 1/40 sec
Software: Adobe Lightroom Classic & Photoshop
Photographer: Bren Ryan

The above image was photographed at Lynmouth on a grey day… so, I thought I would give the image a Sky Replacement in Photoshop.

Once I did that edit, I returned to Lightroom where I wanted to give slight warmth from the yellowy clouds down into the boats. Now I could’ve used a brush and painted but I wanted the effect to be small at the clouds and larger on the boats.

Example only (not used in edit)

So to do this.. I used the brush tool with a small brush at the top and then went to the bottom of image and increased the size of the brush using the scroll wheel on my mouse and then used Shift+Click. As you can see you get a nice flare and then you can use the sliders to create your effect.

For my image above I used two of these edits.

I do hope this little tip helps you… it is great for lighting up street lamps in an image… or just creating light in one specific area.

  2. Great scene, done well. I am always surprised at the tide height differences and having so many boats resting in the mud low tide.

    1. Thank you…. it is surprising how high the tides does come in at times.. Lynmouth had a terrible storm in 1952 with the loss of 34 lives…

  3. Wow! Your blog is fabulous. Amazing photography. Liked the way you put up the specific settings while taking the photo.


  4. Great photo, excellent tip! I knew you could shift-click a second location with the brush to make a “straight line” — but I had never thought to increase the size of the brush and make a cone!
