Sure, something's been done to this image, but the one thing that hasn't been done (outside of the camera) is juice the colors of the sunset. The sun had just disappeared over the horizon and the scene was under exposed, deepening the colors. The boat was brought back a little using a Screen Blend Mode and a Layer Mask of the boat. The foreground seagull was added and hit with a Photo Filter Adjustment Layer, but the sunset is what it is. The silhouetted birds in the background were there. The image was cropped into a panorama, leaving lots of room for the ship to sail into.
As far as I'm concerned, today's image is about as straight as it gets. If you have a question about anything that was done, either leave a comment or send me a note at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org .
That's it for today.
