Before and After – Titchfield Haven

Below is a the out of the camera RAW image from my Lumix GX8. I took the shot at Titchfield Haven, It was cold morning and the sun was just rising.

I slightly under underexposed the shot and used On1 RAW 2018 to process the RAW file.

The final image is below. As you can see, I have cropped the image slightly to reduce the hot-spot from the sun. I have also applied a number of tweaks including, shadow detail adjustments, colour adjustments, sharpening and haze reduction.

The final image is much closer to how I remember the sunrise being.
