San Francisco DLWS Day 3-PM

This movie requires Flash Player 9

Our last evening shoot was from the only view of the Golden Gate we hadn’t taken this week, from the Marin Headlands. It’s such a gorgeous vantage point as the sun sinks and the bridge light rise in the darkness. The famous fog didn’t perform as we desired but the traffic we count on was no disappoint. I put the camera’s ISO down to LO1 and aperture to f/22 to get the slowest possible shutter speed to blur the headlights. I shot in Cloudy to pump up the reds, underexposed by 2 stops to do even more so. Didn’t like the results.

So I turned to a simple HDR and that did the job with a simple 3 image set. I then applied a little Glamor Glow and called it a night. I have more images to finish from the week and a little video. I hope to get it up. Gotta a great photo contest to announce tomorrow so stay tuned!
