I am normally not much of a morning person. But recently, peering out the bedroom a few minutes before sunrise, I notice a few clouds hanging out on the eastern horizon. “This may be something special.” I say to myself. “Do you want to make the effort?” I did and it was well worth it. Saint James City Sunrise is the result of five bracketed shots processed in Photomatix Pro and re-imported into Lightroom for a little final tweaking. By compositing five bracketed exposures the resulting image has a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas than would otherwise be possible. And because of the dynamic range increase, the final image is often more dramatic.
Please let me know what you think.
