San Diego Skyline HDR by trevor-w San Diego Skyline HDR by trevor-w
Five exposure HDR image of the downtown San Diego skyline taken from near the ferry landing on Coronado Island.

Edit for DD:
Wow, thanks everyone! I'm blown away by the response and that this was chosen as a DD.

Some more detail about the photo for those that asked:
This was shot with a Nikon D700 and a Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 at 24mm. You can see my full setup with tripod in another deviation that I just submitted in my Misc category if you're interested.

This was made by combining five separate exposures using Photomatix Pro and then some height cropped (mostly extra sky and a little of the water) out to give it a pano look and some slight color corrections done in Photoshop. The original RAW images were also corrected for lens distortion using Lightroom's built-in profile for this lens before the HDR processing. There's still some curvature and perpective distortion but I left it in as I preferred the look of it to one with more corrections, I felt it gave a better feeling of scale.

Edit: Sorry to add the watermark and remove the wallpaper version but this image has been abused far too many times now. :(

Thanks! Yeah, I've spent a few nights out there looking for the perfect mix of lights and clouds. As much as I like this shot I know I'll end up down there again some night to see what else I can come up with.

Thank you for taking the time to photograph San Diego's night-skyline. I just came back from there, and even though I've never lived there, I feel homesick for it.
