Alki Beach in HDR

As described previously, I've started my adventure with the HDR photography.

Picture was taken few weeks ago at Alki Beach in Seattle, WA almost at sunset, but I haven't had time to work on it until today.

This picture itself was created by combining 6 different photos and playing with the result.

I could probably make it look better, but the beginnings are always hard (eg. look at my old IR photos :)

Update: Didn't like the red and magenta bleeding on edges, so I've fixed them and updated the picture.

Again, brilliant work on the clouds. It's been a while since I've been out to Alki Point. :aww:

Thank you! Glad to hear (or read in that case) that you like it too :) I will do my best to shoot more HDR in the future.

Thank you so much .. I only wish I could have walked inside the fenced area and take few more shots at a different angle. Unfortunately the place was already closed.

But as they say - better luck next time :-) Or should I have said: Better shot next time :-D

These HDR effects still are quite stunning maybe I'll find the time to experiment on those too sooner or later. In the meantime I enjoy looking at wonderful shots like this as an inspiration, really nice : D!

Glad you like it :-)

I should hopefully get better with the HDR after reading the "The HDRI Handbook" by Christian Bloch which seems like an excellent source of information (though it's pretty thick and I don't have much time to read it).

Thank you :-)

I like it as well - I didn't expect it to look good (especially with the big overcast), but was nicely surprised with the final result.

I will hopefully be able to take some more HDR photos soon :)
