Coastal Chaos II - HDR by somadjinn Coastal Chaos II - HDR by somadjinn
Wide-angle capture from Cape Breton's coastline in Nova Scotia. Where I stayed in Ingonish it was drizzling the whole time, so I drove to where the weather took me on the Western coast of the Cabot trail.

Not exactly what you would call clear skies, but at least the sun was putting up a good struggle =p Literally from one minute to the next, I had to throw on a jacket, then throw it back off because the alternating cloud cover was causing wild shifts in temperature, from what I would estimate to be 80 degrees (F) at one extreme then 60 degrees at the other.

Usually try not to go too overboard with HDR in the sense that I prefer rendering images somewhat faithful to how my eyes perceived the scene (with perhaps a little colour boost). Obviously not the case with this picture. Spent over an hour in Photomatix fiddling with the variables and got fed up. Whatever I was doing wrong, I couldn't for the life of me smooth out the histogram without yielding visual abominations saturated with chunks of noise.

So I compromised on a more "surreal" effect with some post-processing in PS to obtain this 3-shot merged composite from 3 separate RAW files with different in-camera exposure values.
