Lifeguard on Duty in South Beach Miami

Sep 26, 2011 | Florida Beaches & Coasts

This HDR photo was shot at South Beach in Miami over the weekend during a trip to shoot the Miami Downtown City Skyline. This is the first time that I photographed a lifeguard tower with a lifeguard on duty… lol. Usually when I shoot lifeguard towers it’s early in the morning and there’s no one at the beach. I also got a bonus with the seagull flying in to sit on the tower. I love when different elements come together to make a unique photo.

Software I use for processing my photos:
Picasa – Free photo management program.
Photomatix – Used for creating high dynamic range.
Topaz Plugins – Photoshop enhancement plugin.
PS Elements – Used for final post processing of HDR images.
