Second Beach Sunset

May 23rd, 2010

This shot looks out towards Vancouver Island from Second Beach in Stanley Park. I've always wanted to come down here and take a decent shot of the sunsets but I never got around to it, until today! I got lucky, as a couple had set up a tent on the beach just as I arrived, I'm sure they enjoyed the sunset too!

For this shot, I did a 5 bracket HDR (-2,-1,0,+1,+2). I used Photomatix to process the HDR image, and then I sharpened the image a little with Adobe Photoshop CS4.

Nikon D300s, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, Manfrotto 190XB & 486RC2 Ballhead. Shot @ 11mm, f/8, ISO100.
