Big Boat by Vikram Franklin

This is an HDR image made by combining 4 RAW files.
Took it for HDR as the colour on this small fishing boat was really brilliant – and reflected the early morning hues of orange from the sea. Any other way and I’d have lost either the boat colour or the sea colours.

    Brilliant my friend. I love the deep orange and the softer hue of the sea to set it off. Great work my Vikram!

  • Thank you kindly Bradley Shawn :-) There were a row of boats lined up along about half a Km and I saw this orange one and just had to go over.
