Found this beautiful little harbour by mistake. Used my Sigma 10-20 and took 5 different exposures and combined them together using Photomatix then CS3, Levels and slightly sharpened.

Hi,

Used a Sigma 10-20 lens with Nikon D300 on tripod. Took 5 different exposures. Used same aperture (F11) and bracketed 5 different raw images. 2 underexposed, 1 correct exposure, and 2 overexposures. Then loaded these images into Photomatix (HDR). After that levels and some sharpening. Thats it. I know HDR is not to everyones taste, but i love it.
Thanks for the nice comments.

I really want to like this, I like the color and composition, but I don't really care for this type processing

theres a lot goin on here that causes your eye to dart around, but it contains wonderful color, texture, and light. When you have those, it almost doesn't matter what the picture contains.

Like the composition; it's an interesting image to explore. Water looks very metallic.
