Taken during my walk yesterday morning, overcast. I used the bracketing feature on the D5100 and set the bracketing at 2.0 AE. I used Aperture Priority Mode at f/11, ISO was 800 (love how well the Nikon shoots at high ISOs). Auto-focus with Matrix focusing. Standard 18-55-mm lens was set at 35-mm. Camera was tripod mounted. Shooting was set at Continuous and three shots were captured, one at -2 Ev, one at 0 Ev, and one at +2 Ev. HDR processing was done with Photomatix Pro 4.0; post-processing and resizing done in Photoshop.
The photo was shot from the Martin Luther King, Jr. Bridge in Danville, VA looking west along the Dan River. The foreground features a little isle and a favorite spot for fishing for striped bass when they come up river in late April to spawn. In the background are the old White Mill (Dan River Mills #8 Mill) and its crossover covered bridge that once led to Long Mill on the north side of the river. For the record, it is the longest covered span bridge in the USA, sad how a poor economy cannot make use of that somehow. Also shown is the dam that was used to supply extra power for White Mill and Long Mill.
