Rodanthe Pier, North Carolina | Thursday 3 September, 2015 | Nikon D5100 | 12-24 mm f/4 | f/22 | ISO 100

Sunrise at Rodanthe Pier

This is the Nikon version of one of the images I captured with my iPhone 6 and the Slow Shutter app. I like the orange-red of the sky and how it is reflected off the water on the beach.

The image was shot my Nikon D5100 on a tripod at three exposures (-2/0/2) and combined in Photomatix Pro with the Natural preset to create an HDR.

I removed several sensor spots in Adobe Lightroom and then applied the Kodak Gold 100 Warm preset from VSCO Film 00 (grain to zero). I levelled the horizon and added a post-crop vignette by setting the amount to -21, midpoint to 0, and roundness to 51.

Equipment:

  • Nikon D5100
  • Tokina 12.0-24.0 mm f/4.0
  • Manfrotto tripod
  • Hoya 0.9 ND filter
