Winter Sunrise

Winter Sunrise

The sunrise on Sunday was mostly cloudy and I went out chasing the light and got this nice scenic shot in Butler County a few miles from home.  Most of my shots are HDR only now and I gave up on the tripod also with software now it has become easy to align images snapped close together.  I usually bracket 5 images with a full step up or down between each shot.  I have also got the timing down to count the number of images shot and seldom miss the five required.

I have been shooting in aperture priority mode and usually set it at f11.  This works better for my 18-55 kit lens.  All alignment is done in post and them processed through Machinery HDR Effects.  This takes about 10-15 minutes.  After that I open the saved image in Corel and make further adjustments until I get the image to the point that I like.  Each image takes 20-30 minutes each from start to finish.  Hope you enjoy the results.
