About the Image(s)

Image taken at the small fishing village of Mayport, FL. minutes before dusk with a large storm passing just to the north.

Gull removed from all images then replaced after processing with Aurora HDR. 3 shot HDR. Slightly grunge but not far off from how I remembered it actually looked.

Equipment info - Nikon D850, F6.3, ISO-1250, Focal length 29, Lens Nikkor 24-70 F/2.8

The blend looks nice and smooth. There seems to be a little of the sky coming through on the gull's tail, so maybe check that mask. It looks to have a little of an Orton style glow to it, and that is the one thing that seems a bit at odds with the subject to me.   Posted: 08/13/2022 21:51:43

Rick, now that you mention it way back with film, I used to go after the Orton effect but now I just consider it to be a little painterly. Always fun to experiment!
Rick, I had to laugh, near the seagull is a spot! I thought wow have a spot on my sensor then I realized my wife was next to me throwing crackers into the air to attract the seagulls!   Posted: 08/15/2022 16:12:30
