Parked Cruiser

A Parked beach cruiser at Pacific Beach; I saw the sun in between the clouds and I thought a sunburst would make it look more interesting 🙂

  1. As you notice already, I’m not a pro in photography(but I’m still dreaming ). I saw some of your photos have an effect. They look so clear, so sharp.
    For example, for this photo did you used some sort of lens or is a HDR?

    • You get that effect using a small aperture, generally.

      • Meaning the star-burst sun. If you are shooting at night, you can get the same effect with street lamps using a small aperture. Sorry if I wasn’t clear.

      • Thank you for your answer, I understand, but, since I don’t use a DSLR (yet), I can’t try this. …

  2. Love the star shape of the sun. I wonder how the photo would be without tonemapping (hdr)?

    • I want to invest in one that I can put in my car easily so I can drive to the “location” and then ride around 🙂

      • it is possible to ride from PB to lots of places. you can go down sports arena, to pch, to downtown, or go up through mission valley all the way to college. or you can just put your bike on the bus. i like to go thru crown point then to downtown and take the bus back.
