Driftwood at Hammonasset Beach State Park

Driftwood at Hammonasset Beach State Park

This photo is a little different than most that I’ve posted.  This is actually a High Dynamic Range (HDR) photo that was also ran through the Nik Software suite of processing tools.  If you’re not familiar with HDR, it involves taking multiple photos at different exposures and then combining them with a software program.  For this shot, I took three photos and combined them with Photomatix.  I then used Nik Software’s Dfine amd Color Efex 4.0 (I usually also use Sharpener Pro 3.0, but I forgot this time) in Lightroom before exporting to this blog.

This piece of driftwood was photographed at Hammonasset Beach State Park located in Madison, Connecticut (that’s Long Island Sound in the background).  In the summer, it’s a really busy place, but during the cooler months, it’s much calmer and my favorite time to visit.  There’s also no entrance fee from around Labor day to Memorial Day (check with the park for the exact dates).
