One of a series of photographic studies of Blackpool North Pier exploring light and tones.
This is a 6 shot HDR with e/v of 0.3 to highlight the textures in the sand, water and sky but only picking out the highlights lit by the golden sun under the pier.
Processed in Photomatix, saved as Tiff file (34.9 MB) then imported into Adobe camera RAW for adjustments before processing in photoshop cs5.
Nikon D5000 Sigma 10-20mm. Tripod mounted with delayed remote shutter actuation.
