Hello again readers! We spent the first part of July on vacation in Carolina Beach, North Carolina. I had a chance to take more beach pictures than I have in previous years and hope to be able to post them in the coming weeks.
This particular shot captures a post that I believe says "Pelican Landing", a lifeguard tower, a couple of beach goers setting up an umbrella, a lifeguard on an ATV, a couple of gulls, and a dragonfly (among other aspects). Of course, looking beyond all of that is the ocean and sand, which honestly is one of the nicest parts of vacation. I took this from a tripod fairly low to the ground and although I did take bracketed shots, I liked everything that was happening in this photo and just processed it with -2 and +2 using Digital Photo Professional. I then used Photomatix to create the HDR and the Nik tools to clean it up a bit.
