Blue Lagoon



I was walking over to see what Matt and Mel were shooting, turns out it was this amazing capture, however I never made it there, because as I walked towards them, this shot presented it self.


Because I was shooting into the sun all three exposures were 'under exposed' to what the camera was saying was correct exposure. This was the first time I had tried this, seams to work ;)


- ISO 100, f22, 1/80, 10mm

- Sigma 10-20mm Lens.

- Tripod.




- HDR, 3 exposures [2,0,+2EV] shot in RAW/ISO100 at f/22, using Sigma 10-20mm lens.

- Soft light layer in Photoshop 6.0

- Noise reduction in Lightroom 2.0 (is not perfect)

- Slight adjustment to straighten the horizon.




- Tone mapped using Photomatrix HDR, in detail mode.
