Photo of the Day: Morning Glory

Sunrise, Custer State Park, South Dakota (HDR Image)

Here’s another “lost” shot from my trip to South Dakota in 2005. To recap, I’d been fooling with HDR sequences to try out with Photoshop CS2, but I was never happy with the results. I had always liked this particular image, but couldn’t get it “right” with HDR until I reprocessed it in HDR Efex Pro, using a modified version of the “Natural Landscape” settings I developed with Tony Sweet. Suddenly, all the magic that was there that chilly October morning in Custer State Park came back to me.

Specs: Nikon D2x with 17-55mm f/2.8 AFS G DX Nikkor lens, ISO 100 @f/16. 5-shot sequence.

  1. geez, the more I see the quality of these HDR shots, the more I want to ditch Photomatix and go with this.
