It all started with “Why we love Durban: The Bluff -1“.
Post “2” followed and now here is “3” below.
I woke up shortly before 04:00, made coffee and then Roscoe and I left to catch the sunrise at Brighton / Anstey’s Beach, Durban South Africa.
I took 291 bracketed photos on various settings, as I am still trying to get the hang of HDR photography into the sun or at night.
Photo 1 is shown below. It is the first one I processed. I think the others to follow will turn out a little better here and there (I’m holding thumbs).
Photomatix is busy chomping on my memory; processing all the other photos. I am trying to batch-process bracketed photos on at least three different settings to see what I get (normally I would process one batch at a time).
This time I found likable settings using one batch of photos for say all the “into the sun / at beach” photos, and then applied the same settings to all the other similar batches.
Version 2: same shot but different batch / settings is shown below.
Which one do you like?
