Improve evening light

Improve evening light
By Kees van Dongen , Friday, 29 May 2020
Last night during the golden hour I traveled to an avenue to capture the beautiful golden light.
On arrival I see the light falling nicely on the trees. I always pay close attention to where the sun is. Sometimes it can give a nice effect against the light, but usually I like taking photos with the light.

When I finally have everything ready and determined the composite, take a good look at the composition and also see the light fall beautifully, I know that after the processing this light will come into its own even more. When finishing, it is important to keep a close eye on the light, especially if you use 'dodge' and 'burn'.

Below you can see the result before and after the operation.
