Created with a six exposure set via Photomatix Pro 4, the HDRI was tonemapped three separate times to emphasize different parts of the image. One version concentrated on a nice, clean sky free of halos while another focused on detail in the access ramp. Finally, a third process created a highlights and shadows map which was used to add contrast to the clouds, ramp and beach selectively. Color saturation and overall contrast manipulated separately in Lab mode, border added in CS5. Minor adjustments in Lightroom 3.
