Beat The Heat At The Beach

Finally finished this shot sitting in the heat in LA. This illustrates the power of RAW (cr2) photography. One image is just as off the camera, the other is after the conversion and some masking to bring out the tones and colors that had been hidden in the darker areas. This is not HDR, or composted. Just color, contrast and curves adjusted.

As you can see in the larger image if you click, there is too much noise as a result of the shadows being pushed so hard. Next, it's all about Adobe Lightroom to fix the noise and then I'll add the shot to these for comparison. Remember-Click to see the full size images.
