Orient-by-the-Sea Restaurant and Marina is the location furthest east on the North Fork where one can dine if you don't count the snack bar at the Cross Sound Ferry terminal 200 yards away.  During the season many "party boats" make their home here, taking fishermen out for half day or whole day fishing expeditions, the way to go if you don't own a boat.  At the end of the trip the crew hands you your catch cleaned and ready for cooking.  This shot was taken in December with a low angled sun under leaden skies.  Three shots at different exposures were combined to get his result, fun to look at and a little other-worldly.  Some colors and other details pop.

Wow, you aren't kidding that the colors pop out. How do you combine three images? In the camera or with computer software?

How nice to go fishing and have the fish cookin' ready when you get home. That is a great marketing idea!

I combine them with computer software called Photomatix Pro. My brother Evan, a most excellent photographer turned me on to it. See some of his work at:

Very cool; love how the colors and some of the details pop. My new camera has the capability to combine multiple images inside the camera. I believe I am limited to two pictures. I haven't explored that feature yet; still getting comfortable with the camera.

I do hope you don't find this insulting... Hubby and I love to do jigsaw puzzles in the winter. This photo would make an awesome puzzle! Let me know if you sell it for a puzzle... I'll buy one!

What a great idea Lily! I haven't made any puzzles from my photos (yet!) but I just may look into it. In the meantime I authorize any of my faithful followers to download the picture and make your own puzzle. If anyone does it please send me a photo. I'd get a huge kick out of it!

That new tripod is paying off, I see. Congratulations! Good job on the HDR, keeping it real rather than heavily processed.
