Beauty and the Beach

Lake Erie Guard Chair (HDR)

This shot was taken on a beach of Lake Erie in Presque Isle State Park, Erie, Pennsylvania. Can you find the sailboat (hint: look at the horizon and zoom in)? It was taken using an Olympus Stylus 820 digital camera. The digital image was then processed in Photoshop to adjust color and contrast levels, apply a slight “glow” to the edges, and finally processed with Dynamic HDR software into an HDR image. Isn’t Erie simply gorgeous?

  1. Hi, looks like you caught the full dynamic range. I like the composition with strong diagonals and yes I see the sailboat. Good Luck with HDR, may you capture the full range in all your images!! – Ferrell
