Space Coast Dawn

You get a break from Space Coast birds today. This is the view that met me Saturday morning when I opened the door of my hotel room. Not much to do here but point and shoot. Exposed for the sky, of course, and I let the palms go completely black for effect.

Sony DSC H50 at 31mm equivalent. F2.7 @ 1/30th @ ISO 100. Programmed auto.

Recovery in Lightroom for the sky. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Blackpoint just slightly right. Sharpen Landscape preset.

But, of course, I couldn’t take just one. This one showed considerable perspective distortion in the trees (they leaned in to the center at the edges), so I exported it to PhotoShop Elements 7 and used the Camera Distortion filter set to correct it.

And finally a closer view of the trees, zoomed in for cropping.
