|Hi Alexei and sorry for the late reply...i had a lot of stuff to do yesterday
Thank you very much for your kind words on my photo, again, and for the detailed comment, as usual. Croatia is indeed a lovely place and it's full of such spots, just perfect for sunsets and sunrises.
I don't know exactly what you mean with "decreasing aperture value to optimum level"...Could you please try to explain? :)
Here i used a hard ND grad filter to try and get some more light to the rocks in the lower part. That is also why i compensated with +2/3 the exposure. The result is actually quite close to what i wanted, because those rocks there were indeed beautiful and pretty bright. Maybe this information helps :)
Best wishes and thanks again
