Lake Worth Fishing Pier Storm Clouds

Apr 6, 2012 | Florida Beaches & Coasts

Here something I haven’t done in a while, a very long exposure. For those wondering, this is a single exposure HDR tone mapped from one RAW file using Photomatix Pro. I created two HDR images, one using detail enhancer and another using tone compressor. I brought those two together and blended them in Photoshop for a natural but dramatic look. I also used Topaz plugins to polish up the images and finally Lightroom for color and tones.
