    Golden kite surfing

    I was down at Wellington Point late on Sunday afternoon, and the wind was blowing enough to bring out all the kite surfers. The sun was to the west providing for these golden silhouettes:

    Thanks Greg. Some of the kite surfers were hanging quite high.

    Golden kite surfing

    Thanks Chris. I tried using the white balance selector in Lightroom, which returned the colours to more middle of the day colours, but without the golden glow, the images lost that late afternoon feel. So I kept the As shot white balance.

    Nice images John,

    You can always experiment with a few of the free LUT's or presets available for Lightroom CC. There are some nice seasonal ones, as well as goldenhour etc, great for quick tweaks to images.

    Re: Golden kite surfing

    I hope you don't mind, but I applied a LUT to a couple of your images. I could've reduced/increased the opacity, but just wanted to show how applying one LUT can change an image with no other tweaks. I love how LR has improved a users experience where now as you hover the mouse over presets the image changes, and LUT's have a thumbnail. I haven't tried making my own LUT's as yet, but have seen a few tutorials on line.
