All right, off we go back to Ocean City. I kind of like this bouncing around form subject to subject. Don’t get me wrong, series are nice too, but this just keeps it more interesting, keeps you on your toes.
Like I’ve said a couple of times, the sunrise was a little tough to catch during the couple days that we were there. There was always a hefty layer of clouds that covered the horizon, so the sun wasn’t visible right when it came up. Then, in the following hour or so, the clouds stuck around and created this hazy atmosphere, so I wasn’t able to get the sun rays that I wanted on this morning. In a way though, I think it works. The way that the light is so diffused, it has a bit of a soothing effect, something that a shot with the sharp, distinctive sun rays may not have.
Not a whole lot to speak of on the processing side here. Standard HDR settings in Photomatix on this seven exposure HDR, then kicked it over the CS5 and removed the dust spots. Added a Contrast Only filter in Color Efex as well as more of an S curve than I normally do. Did some selective color adjustments to the blues in the sky and that’s about it.
I’ll be working over the next couple days on getting some new shots and galleries up on the website. I have a ton of work that I would really like to display, and I think that I finally will have some time to do it. Pretty excited this weekend too, I have a baby shoot in the morning as well as a live band to shoot at night. Should be fun.
Thanks for the visits, see you all tomorrow.
