I FINALLY got out and shot something last night!
I had a feeling that the sunset was going to be a good one, and I had scoped out a spot that I really liked.
I headed over about 30 minutes before sunset and sat up, and waited, and waited. It seemed as if my luck was going to run out and the sunset would not be that great after all.
But alas, my patience was rewarded and I came away with this shot (well, 5) as well as some others.
Yes, this is an HDR image.
It is 5 photos; -2, -1, 0, 1, 2.
I merged the photos in Photomatix Pro 4 and then tonemapped. I saved it as a 16Bit-Tiff file (250mb around) and then opened in photoshop to add a little more contrast/saturation and resized the image a little bit.
