Blue 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 magenta-blue sky. I find blues relaxing and that’s how I felt walking along the beach early in the morning.

The images were all shot 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). In Photoshop, I removed the lamp poles along the pier. I simply felt that this made the image a bit cleaner. 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
