Yaquina Head Lighthouse - Newport, Oregon – Derek Helt
This is a great example of HDR (High Dynamic Range) technique used to bring out the artistic quality of the image. To some purist this isn’t subtle enough, but to us it is just great eye catching photography. The Yaquina Head Lighthouse was built in 1872 and reaches a height of 93 feet making it Oregon’s tallest lighthouse. Please read Derek’s story below and then visit his website http://brightcloudyday.wordpress.com/. for some more beautiful images from Newport, Oregon one of which we featured here “The Bridge to Nowhere”.
This is a photo of the Yaquina Head Lighthouse in Newport, OR, USA. It was an absolutely beautiful winter day here, with the temperature reaching 57 degrees F. I went out to the lighthouse about an hour before sunset. This image is a 3-shot HDR. I used my trusty Pentax K-30 with a Sigma 18-70mm lens on it. Aperture: f8. ISO: 200, exposure varied due to it being a 3-image composite. I used Adobe Lightroom and HDR Efex Pro 2 to process it.
