Editing the Photos
I used different elements of photoshop in order to create a variety of effects on photos.
Black and White Beach
For this edit i used to rectangular marquee tool to drag the clouds and the sun down in order to fill up the sky more dramatically and give the illusion of a sunset/sunrise. I then adjusted the lighting levels and added tints or highlights in different areas over the clouds to make the sky darker in some parts of the photo- thus causing a more dramatic skyline.
