Alone Again Naturally - Newport Beach, Sydney - The HDR Experience by 


Just goes to prove make good with what is around you , I thought the pice of Kelp added to this shot I’ll leave it up to you if you agree.

My neighbourhood, my sunrise, my inspiration.
Newport Beach I awoke looked out the window to see a glint of colour. Will i get out of bed , or roll over and go back to sleep ?

Guess what decision won?

Newport Beach is one of the many beaches, north of the city within a short drive. Everyone goes to Bondi that is crowded. Why not head north to pristine beaches, no crowds, and watch the sun rise and set. A good seafood meal, some chilled chardonnay or a beer.

Sorry nothern hemisphere bubblers it’s officially Summer downunder, so we have to put up with mornings like this for the next few months. Yes I know it’s hard but somebody has to do it !

Equipment: Nikon D300, Sigma 10-20mm lens, Handheld

Techniue: HDR, 5 Exposures , Photomatix 3.2 64 Bit, Slight sharpen in Capture NX

    Wow Philip, what beautiful tones and reflections and fine detail… and you’re right about the large view. The HDR effect, subtle as it is, really kicks in when you click.
    Fine work!
