Ocean Sunrise

This was taken just to the east of downtown Miami, FL.

Being on the ocean at sunrise is very calming.  Reminds me of my Navy years and my few months on the “Ike”, USS Eisnhower, CVN-69.

HDR- Palm Tree

I wanted to bring out the detail and the highlights in the center of the palm tree, so I shot this tree in 3 exposures.  +2, 0, -2, handheld.

I then combined the images in Photoshop to make a HDR image.  The tree has a little glow to it.  I think it gives it a warmth.  Makes you feel as if you are lying on the beach looking up at the palm.

Summer Afternoon

This was taken just a short walk from where we live.  It was a beautiful summer afternoon.  Can’t wait until the weather is like this again.

A little HDR effect was added to give detail.

Cloudy Sunrise

While shooting a sunrise off Sunny Isles, FL, I saw this woman on the pier. I like the way the clouds fill the frame.

Quite Sunrise

Taken just off the Miami Beach shore, this  was the morning after a bad storm.  HDR effect was added to bring out detail and add mood.
