I was originally there for sunset and got some great shots but just after the sun sank below the horizon this storm blew in and I was lucky enough to get some shots with lightning in the frame.
Location: 12 Apostles on the Great Ocean Road
Processing: I used lightroom for the bulk of the editing. I boosted the exposure +0.61, increased the contrast by +36 and also increased both the highlights and shadows +100, I increased the whites to +36 to help bring out the lightning and increased the blacks -19 to help with the contrast in the darker tones. I also added +60 clarity to “pop” the whole image and added +19 vibrancy to bring out more colour. Lastly I enabled profile corrections, reduced chromatic aberrations and leveled the image.
