This is a three exposure HDR using NIK HDR Efex Pro 2 for the merger and tonemapping as well as some exposure and structure adjustment. The three kayaks in the scene are from the middle value exposure which is the default frame for NIK HDR Efex Pro 2 when anti-ghosting is applied; I used a 60% setting which seems to work very well for preventing ghosts when objects in the scene are moving in one direction. The anti-ghosting also worked very well for the women walking along the landing at this 60% setting. After completing my NIK HDR Efex Pro 2 adjustments I returned the image to Aperture 3 where I adjusted the separate color channels to get the image I wanted.

  1. Your photographs often make me feel as if I am the only person left on a very quiet earth (even if there are people in the shot). They make me feel like the earth is showing us how she feels without us on her…beautiful and free. Glorious serene and untroubled by the tiny creatures clinging tightly to her ancient body. More trucks please.

    1. What a wonderful comment; I’m very honored that you get those feelings from my landscapes. I especially like the part about quiet, serene and I hope peaceful as well. Thanks too for commenting and expressing your interest in seeing more trucks, tractors, etc.they are some of my favorite subjects.

  2. Yes, your landscapes definitely bring a feeling of peace to the viewer…all is right with the world!
