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.

This was taken on my last trip with my wife and brother to Key West, FL.

The sailboat sailed into my shot just as the sun was setting.

This was a 3 exposure HDR image.  I took this shot off South Beach Miami, FL.

I like the way the splash is shown in the sun rays.

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?

We went to the park on the bayside in Corolla, NC for sunset.

Beautiful evening. It was great until the bugs came.

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.

Nothing like spending the day on the water.  Other than watching the sunset on the water.

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”
