Brant Point Lighthouse in Nantucket, Massachusetts

The Gulls invaded the Brant Point well after day broke, and I was still there to catch the view.  Even clouds could not spoil the view.  Nantucket has so much to offer.  If you’ve never been there, I strongly recommend a mini-vacation, or a longer one, if you have the time and capital.

Brant Point Lighthouse

Brant Point Lighthouse

Looking back, I realized that it was just two years ago that my wife and I took a  mini-vacation at Nantucket Island, off the coast of Massachusetts.  It was a wonderfully romantic three days, filled with  sightseeing, shopping, and photography (also some real relaxation).  This is the Brant Point Lighthouse, the second oldest lighthouse in America (1746).  It is also the lowest lighthouse in New England, only 26 feet above sea level.  This shot was taken at 6:26 p.m., and it was pretty chilly out there for mid-April.  I shot this lighthouse for more than two hours as the light kept changing.

Boston Skyline Featuring Zakim-Bunker Hill Bridge

Boston Skyline Featuring Zakim-Bunker Hill Bridge

This, again, is the Boston Skyline, but this time you can see the Leonard P. Zakim-Bunker Hill Bridge on the right.  That’s also Boston’s  famous Old North Church behind the bridge.  Finally, off to the left is Boston Garden (actually named the TD Banknorth Garden.)  This is my second attempt at an HDR (High Dynamic Range) image, but it’s actually only one image with a faux HDR look, courtesy of Redynamix, Photoshop Elements 6.0, and Picassa 3.1.  I know that it’s a bit on the artistic/creative side, but the original was rather plain, and not too inspiring.  I enjoyed creating this version.  The original data is as follows:

Nikon D200, ISO 100, exposure of 8.0 seconds at f5.6, +2/3, focal length of 170 (255–35mm equivalent)

Boston Skyline

Boston Skyline

This was my first attempt at HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging. I used Dynamic Photo HDR (3.43) –from Mediachance.com to combine two photos which I took on a weekend at the Hyatt Regency Harborside in Boston.  One photo was taken at a low Kelvin temperature (and came out mostly blue–with a bit of purple).  The other had a high Kelvin temperature and came out with a pinkish-orange glow.  This is the result. 

Data:  Nikon D200, ISO 100, f 7.1, 48mm, 3 seconds, 1/3 stop underexposed
