Sunrise over the Gulf

July 19, 2014 — Leave a comment

A quick photo update for my recent trip to the Gulf of Mexico…   We has spectacular clouds but the dynamic range was challenging for even my Nikon D800, so as with the recent shot of dawn in Camden Harbor, I bracketed (5 shots at one stop intervals), but this time shot handheld as I was on a moving ship and using a tripod would have not created matching shots and would likely have transferred vibration form the engines. Fortunately the Nik HDR program did a wonderful job of removing any ghosting ( details that don’t quite align in the shot ), as well as doing a B&W conversion.


The lesson was to consider using HDR even if you can’t use a tripod or monopod… the results can be great!
