A glorious sunrise greet the passengers of one of the many ocean liners that make Sydney home a base for many a south pacific cruise.
This shot was taken from McMahons Point on the north shore of Sydney Harbour.
Technique: HDR 35 bracketted exposures shot in segments of 5 exposures. The first group of 5 exposures tonemapped in photomatix, then the tonemapping repeated another 6 times to create 7 tiff files. The 7 files were then merged or stitched in photoshop to form 1 × 500mb panoramic tiff file. Further cropping and tidy in photoshop saved as both a tiff file and jpeg
Equipment: Nikon D300, Nikon 18-70mm, manfrotto tripod
