Textures - Warriewood Beach Headland, Sydney (35 Exposure HDR Panoramic) The HDR Experience by 


it’s a shame our beaches are crowded, lol, but isnt it great as a photographer to be blessed with a magnificenr sky and throw in light

Warriewood Beach is located on Sydney’s glorious Northern Beaches, a short 30 Kilometres north of Sydneys CBD is what seems a endless stretch of magnificent beaches.

Surf,swim , relax sip a cold drink picnic or just settle down for a meal, watch the sunrise and the sunset. This shot was taken early morning with a magnificent sky light its a hardlife but this is a few minutes from my home.

So if you visit Sydney don’t forget these beaches and scenery are yours to enjoy.

Technique: HDR 35 Raw exposures , bracketted in 7 groups of 5 exposures .

The first group of 5 bracketted exposures was tonemapped in Photomatix Pro to form one 35mb tiff file. This process was repeated a further 6 times to form 7 × 35mb tiff files total.

All 7 Tiff files were then merged using Photoshop Element in circular style to form one 295mb Panoramic Tiff file, this file was then saved and converted to a jpg file.

Both files were cleaned up in capture NX with a slight sharpen and contrast adjustment.

Equipment: Nikon D300, Nikon 18-70mm

    Phillip, the experts in my camera club would say… great, but the blue tone in the foreground rocks was perhaps a little overdone, unnatural.
    Wow, you sure go to a lot of effort to produce these images.

  • Phanks Phil

    well to tell you the truth i dont adjust colour, i normally tonemap, sharpen and perhaps contrast slightly then save. Next time your at the beach check some of the rocks in this area the rocks have some hint of metal which is quite blue. There even is a hint of rust in that boulder at bottom right. So that blue might be more natural than you think it’s the hdr bringing out that detail not any colour adjustment

    – Philip Johnson

  • the blue the way i remember was like gravel, i think the area must have had a volcanic past milleniums ago
