The Gathering of the Fisherman at the End of the Day: Kazusaminato, Boso Peninsula, Chiba, Japan

Another shot from the bay at Kazusaminato, shot at the end of our day-out on the Boso Peninsula, Chiba, the other week.

In the distance on a harbour wall about half a kilometre away were a bunch of fishermen, They were just packing-up when I took this shot. The silhouettes looked cool against the graduated tones of the landscape in the distant background.

There was a little ghosting on them when I got the final HDR rendered up, so I brushed their outlines a little just to make them as defined as they were in each of the single frames.

Full description of how I made a similar HDR from this location and some of my HDR-making philosphy at:
