    Its 3 tripod based shots taken at different exposures, from underexposed to overexposed. The 3 images are then combined in a single High Dynamic Range (HDR) file with a program called Photomatix . After tone mapping adjustments I then take the image into Photoshop for some final tweaks, mostly contrast and color correction. You can learn more about HDR processing at this link www.hdrsoft.com

    Thanks guys for looking and commenting!

    'Dawg, how much exposure comp did you use on the three? hdrsoft.com says 3 images 2 stops apart - others say 5 images 1 stop apart, some say as many as it takes to go from pure black shadows to pure white highlights!

    BTW, just wanted to say once more how much I like this image!!

    Dane, this image was 2 stops apart ...I mostly shoot HDR's with my cameras bracketing mode set a 2 apart, but of course it all depends on the lighting of the scene.

    I’m glad you like the shot, I'm very proud of this one.

    Thanks for the info. I've kept my auto bracket set to +/- 1 up 'til now. Gotta change it and go find something to shoot!

    That is a wonderful image Randy!

    I hope you've got it framed and hanging on the wall, or at least going to do that?

    Oh.....my.....goodness!!!! What a killer shot! I could stare at that for hours. I'm loving the rust color on the hull, the deep blue sky peeking out at the top left, and the still water at the front left foreground. Everything about this shot is wonderful. You're rightly proud of this one, Randog!!

    Thanks Solor, Col and Anty!

    I really love this image, I have print orders from nearly all my friends. I will also be printing out a 30" x 40" print for display as the centerpiece of my living room.

    Wow! Jeanne, I haven't heard from you for a while. I hope you're doing well, thank you for commenting!
