Feel the Power of Rush - HDR

Featured in - Top 99 most popular HDR images for June 2008


I am not really great with water shot but have been inspired by many out there. This photo has been intentionally captured with a slightly tilted horizon so that the rush of the water might look a bit more impactful in almost the same tilted direction. Hmmm.. not really sure if i have made any sense in that LOL! Anyway that's what its all about. Let's enjoy the rush of life - NOT! :P






The Glenelg Beach


The shot


6 exposures shots (-2..-1..0..+1..+2EV) with tripod using the Canon EF-S 18-55mm lens and a polarized light filter (opps! its 5 xp shots... my bad! :P)




- Added a layer effect of 'curves' to increase the contrast

- Added a layer effect of 'saturation' to increase the blue of the sky & increase the red slightly for the rocks and sand

- Used 'unsharp mask' ( as always ) on the background layer




All comments, criticism and tips for improvements are ( as always ) welcome.
