#24 Sea Lion Cave - HDR - actually tone mapped.

Sea-Lion-Cave-HDR-6350

Semi - HDR version: I took this at Sea Lion Cave on the Oregon coast just up from Florence OR. This my first attempt at using Photomatix on one RAW file as input. I think it is a significant improvement. Note that I layered the original under the HDR image from Photomatix. I masked the HDR water out, it looked too brown. Pulled down the opacity of the HDR layer to 78%.

Photograph EXIF info:
Canon 20D using EFS 17-55 IS at 55mm for 1/15 seconds @ f/2.8, iso=800.

Below is the original shot.
