A shot from the Portuguese Coast.
This is Zambujeira do Mar, a stunning little white village that was our first stop on our trip up the Rota Vicentina trail.

I agree; beautiful! Shot w/ a ND filter? Care to share your processing on this? The church looks surreal...

I couldn't agree more. Great job Sanjeev, as always.

Sorry about the slow reply, I have been out of decent internet range for the past few days. (Although this meant I was seeing some spectacular French Alps landscapes :) )

I don't have the master PSD file on me right at the moment; so can be a bit more accurate when have it, but:

The shot was one shot with Canon 7d + Sigma 18-35. Lee big stopper and circ polariser. at 18mm and 81 sec.

in ACR I did some colour balance/minor contrast/vibrance adjustments. I also did a separate process (of the same RAW file) to help recover some of the highlights (on the church mainly).

In CS5 I did local contrast adjustments with levels and curves. (Mostly using luminosity masks for better control)
Some colour balance/saturation changes to desat the sea and make it look more realistic IMO
Some microcontrast on the rocks with unsharp mask.
A little bit of Orton effect; mainly used for parts of the sea, but also masked into some of the rocks.

I saturated the sky a bit with LAB colour IIRC (but looking at it now I think I probably went a little over the top - this was hard, as the scene was almost surreal with the clear sky sunset anyway, but I will probably reduce the saturation a little bit for printing. I find it quite hard with some colours at the moment as I am travelling and my laptop screen isn't as good with colour as what I use at home).

I think that was mostly what I did.
