The southern point of Saundersfoot bay in Pembrokeshire Wales, is marked by Monkstone Point. A rock outcrop that is submerged during all but low tide. On the southern side of the point, is a lovely deserted beach with complete views of Tenby and it's colourful skyline of buildings.
I wanted to achieve a muted cinematic film look from the late 60s, something along the lines of the colour palette of Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns.
In editing these photos, the main manipulation was the luminance curve, with the black and white points lifted, so there isn't a pure black or white parts to the picture, but greys. A sample of the curve is shown below.
At low tide, the point is crossable and beaches on both sides grow significantly in size.
