Hey there,i have a scene happening on the beach around noon. a couple is walking on the sand and looking towards the horizon. it's a very wide shot and i can obvisously see the horizon. originaly it was written to be at noon but i can manage to shoot it around 10h00 or maybe 11h00...
is there any nice way for this to look a bit contrasty and have some gold reflexions on the water? (besides shooting in the afternoon and darkening the sky with pola and nd.grad)
Many thanks!

Lol bad time to shoot. Is the timing due to continuity issues? Because if not, I would push to shoot much earlier or later. The beach looks like crap that time of day, especially with no clouds.

Two ideas if you MUST shoot at that time.

1. Maybe throw on some warming filters and basically let the sparkles blow out around the people to create a heavenly effect. In other words, place the subjects between the camera and the sparkles on the water. Then maybe shoot from a low angle on the turn around to see their faces.

2. Stack on the polas if the water is a nice color.
