| Waking up with the gods... |
in Garden of the Gods that is! Here is a sunrise shot from last Sunday Morning. It required getting up at 3am so as to get to there in time, but it was well worth losing a bit of sleep. I have a few shots where there was some cool color in the clouds, but for this composition it was about the sun breaking the horizon and the golden glow it cast on the rocks.
I also used only ACR in processing the raw shot. I typically use Nikons Capture NX2 for raw processing, but decided to test out just using ACR to see how it handled the D800 files. This shot is a single shot, having the great dynamic range of the D800 makes it so much easier to process. The only blending I did was around the sun star, as I took 2 shots of this, one with the sun star and one where I poked my finger in front of my lens to block the sun and prevent sun flaring all over the rest of the image. It really makes for a cleaner image that way.
