On a recent trip to Destin, FL., I had a chance to use my new camera, Sony NEX6.
I like the clouds in the background.

I shot this 3 exposure HDR image on my way to work awhile back.
I over did the HDR effect to give detail and effect to the image.
I used NIK HDR Pro for processing.

I’ve been bad.

I haven’t been up dating the site.  I’ve been on vacation.
BUT, now I have lots of pics to show.  I’ll start with the view from our hotel room in Santorini, Greece.

This was great to wake to and see at sunset, that pic is coming soon.

A peaceful sunrise in the FL Keys. This is a 3 exposure HDR.
Nik HDR Efex Pro 2 was used for processing.

Now let the weekend begin.

Here is an image I took at the Matheson Hammock Park just south of Miami, FL.  These are mangrove trees at low tide.  Within an hour the water level was at 12″. Image was processed in ACR and then in OnOne Suite 7 to add more detail in foreground.

I was up early taking some sunrise pictures.
Here is a barn on a small pond in our neighborhood.

This was a 1 second exposure to give it a little glow.

I need to go back to the beach.
This was taken from Mallory Square in Key West, FL.

Watched this beautiful sunset with my wife and brother.  Good times.

Here is a shot I took a few years ago. Recently, I converted it to black and white.

I think it turned out good.  What do you think?

1st day of Spring! Yeah.
I wanted to post something that made me think “warm”.
This is a 3 exposure, -2,0,+2, HDR image.  This was taken on the beach near South Beach Miami, FL.
