Daily Photo – No Pool This Beautiful Should be Empty at a Time Like This

I think the title says it all!

I’ve never been much of a swimmer. I mean, I can swim just fine and I’m as bouyant as anyone my age should be, but I don’t really like it as a form of exercise. THere is always so much that goes into the perparation bit of the exercise. Also, since I can’t liseten to my iPod while I swim, that’s kind of a deal-killer. I’ve heard they have some new water-proof MP3 players, but that just sounds like too much trouble all around.

Anyway, this was a 5-exposure HDR that went from -2 to +2. I’m convinced it’s the only way to shoot into the sun and get all the light levels of the details around the pool.

    Awesome shot, I love it!

    Beautiful capture Trey. The pool looks a bit cold though, so I’ll wait till the sun comes up before going for a dip! :-)

    Palm Beach, huh? It looks all peaceful now, but I’d hate to see it with 100 kids in it! You caught it at a good time.

    Lovely picture, Trey. Looks inviting. Wish I could swim!! I found out this past weekend I can’t go in a pool with moving water and jets. My vertigo won’t let me. But I enjoyed sitting in the smaller pool at the hot springs filled with hot water. Great job, hope you are enjoying Yellowstone. Waiting for those pictures ;-) .

    like the ripples in the pool. Nice backdrop. All in all a fantastic capture Trey …..

  • Zak Shelhamer

    Yup looks like a nice place to be. good contrast of the cool colors from the water and warm colors from the sky.

  • Stuck In Customs

    Thanks yall – sorry for my lack of responsiveness lately- I have been away away away… but got some good shooting in… trying to finish one for tomorrow now!

  • Bob the builder

    The sun makes the sky appear to be on fire! Beautiful scene and colors.

  • JBoone

    Does your camera auto-bracket 5 exposures? I use the 5D mark 2 and can only auto-bracket 3.

  • Stuck In Customs

    Yes — it does up to 9 exposures

  • Mark

    Don’t feel too bad JBoone, even though we Canon folk can only do a 3 shot auto-bracket, we get to select between 1/3, 1/2 or 1 stop increments! :)

    This shot is one of my recent favs Trey. So much for the eyes to take in. And a textbook HDR scenario, this type of shot would not be possible without it.
    Great job.

  • Norma

    I’m in awe of your work!

  • Stephen

    Definitely agree with the +2 -2 philosophy! I’m always surprised though how water seems to look natural. It surely moves between exposures – is that just Photomatix weaving some magic or do you replace the water with the water from the most suitable single exposure on a new layer?
