Like the Golden Gate Bridge and Yosemite's Half Dome, the Santa Montica Pier is probably the most photographed thing in America. The challenge as always was to take a photo of it in a way that's never been done before. Although it was night, I decided HDR was best. The reason is, I like the way three separate shots blends the ocean waves together. It's worked well for me in the past and thought this was the perfect situation.
