Sunrise on the Tidal Basin

This morning, I hosted a private workshop on the Tidal Basin. We went to one of my favorite spots, the Kutz Bridge, for sunrise. I constantly find myself enamored (at least for now) with the way sunrise light plays with ripples in the water; I like this effect much more than long exposures that smooth out the texture.

I merged two exposures in photoshop to produce this HDR image. I selectively chose the shadow areas to fill in with the brighter exposure — in my opinion a better way to perform HDR photography.

Your comments and thoughts are appreciated! Thanks 🙂
