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.


During my trip to Daytona I was given the opportuntiy to photograph the prefect shot of the Sunglow Fishing Pier. It’s rare that everything comes together to make a beautiful photograph. When photographing landscapes it’s important to have an interesting subject matter. But just as important, the weather, sky, lights and clouds all need to work together to create the perfect shot. This is the first composition of three photographs processed with exposures taken on that day.
