Ominous…

Themed 365 Project

With Hurricane Tomas lurking in the Atlantic I decided to and see what the effects would be at the beach.  The waves were a good 8-12 feet, some of the largest I’ve seen here. Another photographer/surfer told me that the waves were even better on Friday, maybe even some 15 footers, which is certainly not common here. Anyway, I know this doesn’t necessarily show these waves but it does give a pretty good view of the effects of mighty Tomas.

A better look can be seen here.

On a processing note, I have to say that the latest version of Photomatix does an outstanding job of handling ghosting, evidence by the incoming wave on the left of the picture. You can get a trial of it here.

3 shot HDR at -2, 0, +2 with the Sigma 10-20 at 20mm

    1. Thanks for the comments…..Yes, because the lapse of time for any more would make the ghosting even harder to remove. Lately I’ve been experimenting with 6 exposures for static scenes and I really like the results….not feasible with moving objects.

  1. I love the perspective you’ve used … Especially that wide stretch of beach, those small people and the houses that I can imagine being at risk if those waves come in closer at high tide.

    Awesome shot.

  2. I love everything about this one. The sky is spectacular, the buildings are sharp and the people on the beach add perspective and interest. I had no idea you could get such a great HDR with an ocean scene. How far apart in time was each exposure? Just a wonderful composition!!
