Back to Bennion Bay!


I met up with Kirk Hille this afternoon for a shoot back at Bennion Bay. These limestone coastlines look awesome with this cloud cover. We did get rained on a couple times, but still got some images. I was lucky to get this 4 image stitch. The next set of shots of this scene were interupted by a walker, and then it started to rain. After the rain the light on these rocks was nothing compared to this. I don’t know how any light was reaching them through the clouds, but they looked great.

This image has had some levels, contrast and a slight selective colour (darkened the reds in the rocks) adjustments.


Just as we were packing up I took two last photos for this image. It’s an HDR image, one image at 45sec the second at 60sec. The tungsten street lights had come on and were lighting up the rock face. I had to desaturate the rock a little cause of the intensity.

  2. Your getting a nice range in these shots Dylan. Are they HDR with tone mapping. I find tone mapping really adds in the noise in a shot. Hence I just stick with doing it all in PS, well as a good a job as I can anyway.

    Cheers Matt.
    The second image was two slightly different exposures in tone mapping. The noise wasn’t to bad, but I think the more images you use and the greater the difference in exposures, the more noise you will get.
    Yeah the first worked out well I’m pretty happy with it.
