I always love jetty shots especially sneaking under them... of coz with hope that none is going to collapse on me one of these days :P. This is one example of me trying to find a good angle for it. Hope this works & have a great start to the week!

About

 

The Jetty at the Glenelg Beach

 

The Shot

 

Standard 3 exposure shot (+2..0..-2 EV) with tripod using Sigma DC HSM 10-20mm lens

 

Photomatix

 

- Tonemapped generated HDR using detail enhancer option

 

Photoshop

 

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'curves' to increase the contrast

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (yellows) to increase the golden tone

- Added 1 layer mask effects of 'saturation' (blues) to slightly adjust the tone of the sky

- Applied dodging on the dark portion underneath the jetty

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