Artist's Description

Lifeguards – South Cronulla Beach, Sydney, Australia. After a long day keeping the beach safe, these lifeguards take a well earned break.

This image grabbed me as I was walking along to do the Esplanade walk in South Cronulla. Lifegaurds are such an iconic part of Australian life and the sight of this lot having a break, some catching a few zzz’s in the afternoon light, some having a laugh and a few still keeping an eye on the surf, meant I had to take a shot.

The HDR part came about as I took the shot quickly and only had a single Jpeg. Given the light and textured concrete and wall, I wanted to capture all that and so decided to see how sucessful HDR would be from a single Jpeg.

Nikon D90, Nikkor VR 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 @ f6.3, 32mm, 1/160 sec, ISO 200, hand held, HDR’d in Photomatix from a single Jpeg exposed 5x at 1 EV intervals, iPhoto.
