What is a trip to Monterey without a visit to the warf? As we prepare for a winter trip, I thought I would go back through the images from this summer’s adventures. I had visited this image before, but never found what I was looking for. This evening, after it has set for a month or so, I decided to approach it with a fresh set of eyes. I am pleased with the results.
The upcoming adventures include a photo workshop with the National Geographic Traveler Photographer Bob Krist and a trip to Cozumel. I am anxious to take my newly acquired knowledge from the workshop and immediately apply it to a city we have visited many times and have come to love. Stay tuned!
Tip: Being an HDR image shot at night, noise was a serious issue. Even the strongest of NoiseWare filters left the sky speckled with artifacts. To resolve this I ended up using NoiseWare to reduce the noise present anywhere other than the night’s sky. To polish up the sky I blended in one of the underexposed captures.
