Pier at Old Orchard Beach During Sunrise

Aug 19, 2011 | Sunrises & Sunsets

My HDR photos are created by using Photomatix Pro HDR software. I use Luminar NEO for photo editing. I also use Topaz Software for noise removal and sharpening. Affiliate links provided to support site.

The Old Orchard Beach Pier in Maine is one of my favorite piers in America. Unfortunately for me it has been a pier that has been difficult to shoot. The first time I was here I shot everything at 800 ISO. Don’t laugh… I know you’ve done the same once or twice. The second time there, I completely forgot my camera, thinking it was in my case when it was actually sitting back at my cousin’s house. I guess what they say is true… third times a charm, and this time I made sure of it!
