I’m always attracted to beach dunes and their inviting design, sea oats set apart by pathways to the beach stamped with footprints. The second pic is a look-back shot, it is the scene that is directly behind me. I decided to take a journalistic approach and simply turn around and compose the best pic possible. I like the idea of added information, viewers get a realistic look at the shooting environment and it doesn’t carry the same artistic signature. Both these images were processed in Photomatix. I’ve tried many other software programs for HDR and Photomatix is still the leader. You can test it out for free and if you decide to buy because you want HDR to be part of your photographic future then use beforethecoffee in the discount box for an additional discount.
