This HDR photograph was taken a few months ago. I believe I shot this image the same night I photograph the fireworks at the Jupiter Lighthouse. It took me some time to process this particular image because I didn’t know which direction I wanted to go with it. After viewing the image on and off a few times a day for a couple weeks I decided to go with the hyper real look. With high contrast and over saturated colors I manage to turn an ordinary everyday shot into something interesting.
