You could be on the corner selling your post cards Walter. Your pier shots are always spectacular. And Ive also found that Photomatix and Topaz are a good marriage.

Thanks, Bynx. With the economy the way it is I may need to consider your suggestion. :-)

Oooh - Very nice! What is it about ocean pictures that make them work well with what would otherwise be "over-the-top" processing? I like how this came out in spite of the halo effect around the taller building on the pier. What pier is this?

It's the Huntington Beach (Calif.) pier, which is reportedly the longest on the West Coast...just up the beach from where we live.

Actually, there is very minimial halo effect here as you can see from the magnification below. Since some of the people were moving you can see some ghosting from the delay between the 3 shots. My camera shoots at "only" about 3-4 frames/second.

Guess one of these days I'll have to wander down there - the pier looks interesting. The ghosting doesn't show (to me) in the reduced version. What I was noticing isn't obvious when looked at full sized, so it's probably just my perception.
