Sunrise Over Coogee

Sunrise Over Coogee, originally uploaded by BlueBeyond.

Coogee Beach Sunrise 19 July 2010.

It was a beautiful winters morning in Sydney. Quite cool, and I was impressed with the number of swimmers who came and had a dip in this ocean pool at Coogee. Hardy souls indeed!

This is an HDR image. Three images (0, +2 EV and -2 EV) were made consecutively. From Aperture I used the Photomatix plugin to merge and tonemap the resulting image you see here.

This process allowed me to capture the full range of tones I saw in the morning – more than my camera could “see” in any single exposure.
