Olympus EM1 Mark II, 12-200 lens set at 20mm, 0.6 ND filter (2 stops), ISO 64, f8, 1.6sec LIVECOMP, Manfrotto tripod with RRS ballhead
I have been exploring the LIVECOMP feature of my camera. It makes multiple consecutive images at the set shutter speed, and combines them in-camera for a final image. For this shot, I had the tripod set up on the balcony of our cruise ship cabin shortly after docking in a port in Greece. The Mediterranean storm was still going strong, so I left it there for about 35 minutes.
I have applied minimal development to the original RAW image, which is my preference at all times.
I am open to any and all comments on this image, but I have some specific questions for the monkeys:
a) Should I crop out the bright sky in the upper right corner?
b) Should I replace the foreground with a sharper image of the dock and the ships? (I captured one immediately after I finished the LIVECOMP.) I really like the glassy surface that the multiple images have generated of the inner harbor, but the slight blur of the structures kind of bugs me. I do not like doing a ton of post processing.
c) Is it still too blue? I have reduced blue luminance, and adjusted the color temperature to bring the blue down, but I wonder if there is still too much?
Thank you to anyone who has any input!
