Pebble beach

I wish I could show you the pebbles in this shot 🙂 But the reason I framed it this way was to highlight the serene water and pleasing twilight colors.

Location: Pebble beach, @ Split rock state park, Silver bay, MN.

This is a 115 second exposure with a moist lens and a wet tripod as bonus 🙂

Split Rock..

Split Rock is one of the oldest lighthouses in USA. Built in 1910 at a cost of $75000 it boasted an advanced lens/light system imported from France. I took this shot around 6 in the evening… and the smooth water is the result of a 76 second exposure..

Tunnel of gold!

Searching my archives, i found this gem. Minneapolis has a well established light rail transit system and this is one of the stations at the MSP international airport. The tunnel walls are not actually gold as the title suggests (duh! :P) but its the result of a 5 exposure HDR created from a single file. HDRs work best when you want to emphasize colors and textures in a scene.

Twilight

A big hello to everyone! My first post in Noisy Pilgrims 🙂  This is Sri Dhanush from Minneapolis, MN, USA. I am currently pursuing my masters here.

I took this shot behind my house. Its a quick and dirty HDR  just before the sunset that i took sometime back. Love the way the sky and sun turned out in this one.
