This is a shot of a retail storefront I shot and processed as HDR.  This was 3 exposures. I combined and tried to go a little over-the-top to give it a more vibrant look.  I love the clouds and the sky. Shots were taken with Canon 5D.

Kayaking at Sunset

This was a sunset shot taken at Corolla, NC, OBX on the bay side.

It is a 3 shot HDR image.  I combined 3 exposures using Nik HDR efex Pro.  The cool thing about the software is how it fixes ghosting.  Since the kayaker’s oar was moving in all 3 frames, I was able to choose which frame I wanted to use.  I picked the frame where the oars were moving the least.

I think it turned out pretty good.  I like the look and feel and the color.  What do you think?


Miami Sunrise

Getting ready for the long weekend.  Hope everyone enjoys the holiday.
This was a sunrise shot just off the coast of downtown Miami, FL. (Miami is to the left of this image).
I added just a little tone mapping thanks to Nik Efex Pro 4.
Storm was rolling in.  I had to get out of the water.  Didn’t want to be struck my lighting holding a metal tripod in the water. lol.


Had to say it-

“‘Cause I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird you can not change
And the  bird you can not change
And this bird you can not change
Lord knows, I can’t change
Lord help me, I can’t change

Lord I can’t change
Won’t you fly, free bird, yeah”
