HDR – Eastward View on The Boardwalk

This is another HDR image of the Washington, North Carolina boardwalk. Monday’s post was facing West so I simply turned around, moved a few feet back and grabbed this view. On such a beautiful day, it’s difficult to limit oneself to unidirectional shooting. :)

As usual, sky, clouds, water, boats, people, gulls and boardwalk all cooperated very nicely for this kinda touristy snapshotish image.

Processing: About the same as Monday. “Five shots loaded into Nik HDR Efex Pro for tone mapping. I really wanted to bring the shadow areas up to match the darker tones while maintaining a natural look. This was done with control points where I usually bring the exposure down and then add structure. I can also saturate or de-saturate specific areas according to taste.  Overall balance was done in Adobe Photoshop with Shadow/Highlight.  I finished with Hue/Saturation to bring the colors back to reality since the Nik software seems to over saturate a bit.”

Equipment used: Nikon D700 with 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5 lens set to f/27, ISO 200. Manfrotto 190XPROB with 486RC2 ball head.
