Have you ever thought about Utopia? This boat owner must be on a second voyage, I guess. I never thought much about the word until I took a few Greek language classes in college and discovered that utopia literally means “No Place”. And all those years growing up I was living under the delusion that it meant some kind of paradise. So much for our cultural myths, eh!
This five exposure, HDR image is from one of my trips to Washington, North Carolina to work some ultra-wide angle shots with my new camera body. This was a perfect February day with a few clouds and very little wind.
Processing: I used Nik HDR Efex Pro for tone mapping with just a little additional color correction in Adobe Photoshop.
Equipment used: Nikon D700 with 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5 lens set to f/22, ISO 200. Manfrotto 190XPROB with 486RC2 ball head.
