Palm Tree in the Caribbean

This is the final photo from the How-To Video I posted earlier today. Just check my stream to see that...

Many people asked for more explanation -- here it is: The "Fast" exposure was plucked from the 2nd set of five exposures where the leaves were clean and sharp. That was LR4'ed (a verb) to make it look as HDR as possible before re-integrating it with the whole via masking in Photoshop. That's sort of an advanced explanation, so I can understand how I might have lost a few people in there!

The clouds are amazing. What part of the Caribbean are you in?

Endless combinations to experiment with....
 
Awesome. When I stare at the clouds in the background, then focus on the palm, the sky/clouds then seem to shift briefly. What a treat. Nice eye candy.
 
it looks like something from off the internet!
 
awww...wish i was there! looks so warm in the evening!
 
Personally still think the skies over the caribean are best I've ever seen. Great capture! 
 
Wanting, waiting, for you to justify my love...my love... my love

You "had" me with the photo, so it doesn't matter that I'm lost in the explanation. (Based on "You had me at hello.") In other words, it's a beautiful photo I'm pleased to see.

Hattsss offf...!!! Great photography.. all your clicks are awesome...
 
very nice ,like the composition :]
 
true beauty lies in nature......
this photo is an example of it......
 
I believe you took bracketed shots at high ISO, so I thought you were going to tone-map those and then use the result...but I guess the leaves would still have moved across those exposures. So you just bracketed those to make sure you got one with an exposure you liked?
 
it shows how the beauty of our earth i reall like it..
 
beautiful picture...... i would pay 1000 bucks for that
 
beautiful. nature is always too beautiful to explain.

+Trey Ratcliff Very cool, I've not made it to the BVI's yet, but I've heard they are phenomenal. I've been to the Abacos many time though, and a few other Caribbean islands, and love them all so much.
 
I believe in being a kind person and helping anyone if I can. I preface this way beca[_]se I have to say, am I missing something? Its a nice pic, b[_]t I dont get the attention. The time I have lost typing this co[_]ld have been [_]sed to call my Mom and say I love her, ect. Same for 300+ others. I am sry if I there is a backstory for this. Peace and love to all. Not trying to be negative, God bless
