Honeymoon Island, Tampa Bay, FL

I took this picture yesterday at Honeymoon Island. It's a state park near Tampa Bay, FL. I was their with my wife for her grandparent's 50th Anniversay. I think this is the first picture I've ever taken that is worthy to post about. This was also the site of where an intro scene of "The Punisher" was filmed. The Castle Family beach house was a "bath house" at the park. It's actually just a bathroom.



Another picture

These were taken with my newly acquired Nikon Coolpix S9. It's just a small little guy that I can stash in my pocket. Amazingly enough, this is my first digital camera.

Nice pic...but if you had gone for an HDR image, it would have looked absolutely amazing

Hmm, in the brief moment I scanned that article, it seems that the camera must have that capability built in? Or you can use the "merge" feature in PS?




edit: Ahhh, nevermind. I understand it now. The foreground would have been just as sharp as the background. As I understand it, the rocks on the beach would have really jumped out, with just as much color in the sunset as well.

Nope. You set your camera to take 3 shots for each time you press the shutter button. One is normal exposure, one is under exposed, and the other over exposed.

The HDR merge feature in photoshop takes the three pictures and basically gets rid of the blown out sections from under or over exposure and replaces them with properly exposed areas to form one complete image.

If you had taken your first picture and modified it for HDR, your rocky shore there would have been perfectly exposed and visible

Something to try next time

This is a rough generalization, it would look better than this:

I see. Thanks for clarifying that. And you're sure my camera has that capability? I need to break out that manual again.
