Reflections on a year in 365 photographs

Shem Creek in Mt. Pleasant, SC.


Although Tuesday nights are subdued, Shem Creek in Mt. Pleasant, SC becomes a hub of nightlife after dark.  The calm, reflective waters of the deep water creek provide seaside ambiance to dinner or a night on the town.  I consider it one of the more picturesque spots in the area at night.

I used the HDR technique for this photo in order to capture detail not only in the brightly lit bars, but also in the boats toward the rear, center of the image.  Those boats would have been in blackness in a single, straight shot metered for proper exposure on the buildings with the lights.  I gave the saturation a pretty good bump to play up the colors in the lights and on the water and because I knew color would be one of the strongest stories of the image.
