Godrevy Lighthouse, Cornwall

Brilliant Free Luminosity Masking Tool

Godrevy Lighthouse, Cornwall.
Godrevy Lighthouse, Cornwall. Fuji X-T3, Fuji 55-200 at 55mm, ISO160, 1/12″ at f/13.0. Tripod mounted with Kase 0.9 (3 stop) Soft ND GRad filter.

This week I have another image from my recent break in Cornwall. I shot this on the same evening as the one I shared last week. The only difference was that I used a long telephoto lens to capture this image. I must admit that I was being very lazy and didn’t even move my tripod.

The reason I wanted to share this image is that I used it to illustrate my latest YouTube Video. If you haven’t seen the video, here’s the link. The video demonstrates a great free tool for Luminosity Masking in Photoshop.

This is the best free tool that I’ve found. I would even say that it’s better than some of the premium tools on the market. In fact, it’s so good that I used it extensively in my recent Luminosity Masking course.

If you’re interested in Luminosity Masking, you really should try this tool (I included the details and links in the description below the YouTube video).

  1. Robin, I like this image more than the preceding one! My view is that the ultra wide angle view is becomung a cliché, and the images lack a specific subject: were the subject the flowers or the lighthouse? This photo has a much stronger character. I am not sure if this is the dilemma you indicated last week, the distinction between a postcard and a fine art photo, but I surely would say that this one is on the fine art side and that of last friday on the postcard side.
    Thanks for sharing!
