Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge

3 image exposure blend (2/5, 1/10, 1/40) | f/8 | ISO 200 | 16 mm
I just had to capture the cracks on the ground. The lack of water was a common theme throughout the refuge, as it has been a uncharacteristically dry season this year. I couldn't help but see all of the texture and think it would make a great photograph. 

As soon as I took one shot and glanced at the histogram, I knew that I would need more than one exposure to capture the entire dynamic range. I bracketed and took 3 images, 2 stops apart. My goal was to keep it as realistic as possible, and I think I did just that.
