The Sea of Fire - HDR

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

 

Another coastal shot taken a while back but processed slightly different from my usual style :) Hopefully i've kept this as natural as it could be... well, guess a leopard can't change its spot :P i'm still a big sucker for saturated colours tho LOL! Give it to me baby!

About

 

The Glenelg Beach

 

The Shot

 

5 exposures shots (-2..-1..0..+1..+2EV) with tripod using the Canon kit lens EF-S 18-55mm lens and a polarized light filter

 

Photomatix

 

- Tonemapped generated HDR with detail enhancer options

 

Photoshop

 

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

- Added a layer effect of 'saturation' of yellows to slightly enhance the sunset tone

- Added a layer mask to slightly tone down the harshness of the foreshore

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