9/18/2010: No Name Creek HDR

I have taken several shots this year from this spot, where a little creek with no name flows under the old railroad embankment (now the Kennebunk Bridle Trail) on its way to the Mousam River and the sea, generally tempted by a sky like this one. This is a Canon SX20IS and Photomatix HDR, using the auto bracket feature on the Canon for three shots.

The wind was blowing very hard and you can see the disturbance in the grasses of the marsh, but the creek bed is deep enough so that the water, at least back against the sand, is still enough to reflect.

Three shots, separated by 3 EV, auto bracket, with the center point moved down 2/3rd EV using the Exposure Compensation dial. Canon SX20IS @ 28mm equivalent. ISO 160.

Blended in Photomatix using tone mapping and detail enhancement. Final adjustments for Blackpoint, Clarity, Vibrance, and Sharpen in Lightroom.

    Lovely shot, Steve. The depth of field is incredible. It’s almost like 3D. Love your photos. Thanks, Josee
