HDR shot of the Old Orchard Beach Pier located in Old Orchard, Maine. This pier was built in 1898 and reconstructed several times. Unknowingly, I shot this photo at an extremely high ISO so this image is very grainy. It didn’t get me too upset since it wasn’t a great day for shooting ayways. The day light in Maine has been extremely dreary. I might have to change my subject matter from landscapes to boats or something fitting for this gloomy weather.
