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.

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.

Pelican

Something to get over the mid-week hump.

A pelican walks into the drug store.  He asks for a tube of chap-stick and tells the cashier to “put it on my bill”. lol.

This was taken just North of Key West, FL. along the beach.  He was nice enough to allow me to get close enough for the picture.
