Newport Beach, CA – Balboa Fun Zone (HDR)


This past Saturday was the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk. I attended the walk in Newport Beach, CA at the Balboa Fun Zone. We had a great turnout. About 25 people…roughly. I wanted to HDR..and broke off from the group to see what I could find. I met Frank standing next to me during the beginning speech and he joined me for some HDR’ing. We wanted to see what HDR’s we could find at the Fun Zone. We walked up and down the streets…unfortunately, not a Fun Zone for HDR. I wanted to try an arcade in HDR. We walked into one and thought…Skee Ball in HDR…why not?? Might be cool?

Afterwards we hit the beach to take pics of the pier. Look for a shot from here soon! I enjoyed my night and snagged a couple nice shots. Frank, nice to meet you and hope you got a few shots as well! I might lead a walk next year. I have plan and if I can get it together…let ya know next late summer! How was your photo walk..if you attended?? Where did you shoot? Hope you had a great time!

    Skee-Ball! Yes! Great idea Pete, love it

  4. Very retro shot Pete! Awesome! I went to New Smyrna Beach, Florida for the walk. Had a classic car show while we there which was cool. The walks always go by too fast though!

    Pete – great shot! I have one similar but not processed as nicely. Fun night and if you lead a walk next year count me in! Found this post via HDRSpotting which I found from Trey Ratcliff’s site. They had your Oakley shot on the site – very nice. Hope you’re doing well!
