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.
