Nighttime HDR at Crabby Joe’s Pier

Mar 5, 2010 | Landscapes & Scenery

Another HDR shot from Crabby Joe’s Pier in Port Orange, Florida. I wanted to post this photo with the Port Orange Pier Series but I felt this image wasn’t consistent with the other three pier shots. Since the other pier shots were off the pier. By the time I got to the top of Crabby Joe’s pier the sunlight had completely disappeared. Giving me to opportunity to practice some nighttime HDR photography.
