Melbourne Beach

I thought I’d take a break from my current project and post something.  My parents’ 50th wedding anniversary is coming up in July and I’m putting together a photo book and DVD as a surprise gift.  So I’ve been spending every spare minute scanning 70+ years of photographs and 8mm home movies.  It’s fun, but tedious work and I’m getting good experience doing basic photo restoration.   

The photo below was taken on Melbourne Beach, FL a few of months ago.  Canon 7D w/ 16-35mm @16mm, 60sec @f/16, with a LEE Big Stopper.  Processed in Lightroom 4.

Indian River Lagoon

Indian River Lagoon, taken from the Peacocks Pocket Rd in the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.  Unfortunately, the clouds weren't moving very quickly on this day and the sun was just to my right causing that part of sky to blow out.  So I triple stacked some filters to get the exposure up to 120sec and to darken the right side of the sky.
