San Diego

"Discovered by the German's in 1904. They named it San Diego. Which of course in German means a whale's vagina." -Ron Burgundy

Just another shot taken with the B+W ND110 from Coronado Island at sunrise. I should note this is 3 different exposures manually blended in CS5 to maximize dynamic range. One for the foreground one for the sky and another for the sunrise. I think this is my best blend so far and I'm getting much more comfortable doing it. Just need more practice, meaning I need to go out and take more shots! I also believe this is an example where blending may be a better choice than using a GND and a reverse GND stacked over a Big Stopper as I wouldn't been able to get that much detail out of the skyline without having the sun blownout, unless I wanted a silhouette of it. Post processing done using a combination of LR3, Nik Software and CS5.
