April 8, 2013 In HDR
Just a short distance from Newport, RI, is Beavertail Lighthouse. There is a wonderful park with views to the south, east and west. Climbing down on the rocks with the trusty Canon 5D Mark II and tripod, I set up for this HDR shot. A Promote Remote controller was used to bracket 5 frames; -2, -1, 0, +1, +2 EV. Blended together with Nik HDR Efex Pro 2.
HDR Efex Pro allows you to select which frame you wish as the main frame so ghosting from movement in the final image is not an issue. I chose one where the water was blurred giving a sense of movement.
