Redondo Beach Pier

Title – Redondo Beach Pier

Photographer name – Alik Griffin

Description of place

This pier is unlike other piers, it loops around and reconnects to the beach forming a half loop. There is a lot of drama in the history of this pier. It’s been battered by several storms and burned back to the waterline in the late 1980s. It’s since been rebuilt and reinforced with concrete but is now much smaller.

 Extra processing information:

I typically like to apply all my lens profiles and grain reduction filters before using Photomatix. I’ve noticed it helps cut down some of the strange HDR artifacts and chromatic aberrations.

Photographers bio

I’m Los Angeles based Photographer that focuses a lot on HDR beach photography. When not shooting beaches or working my day/night job in advertising as an Editor I travel. I’ve recently started taking photography more serious and am now focusing my attention on a blog where I discuss photography and share what I’ve been learning.
