This is our local beach in northern NSW, Australia. Taken in 2006 not long after storms had swept through and ravaged the vegetation.

Nikon D200 12-24mm Nikkor.

Handheld HDR from 3 shots (-1/0/+1), 12-24mm lens.
Photomatix using Details Enhancer.
PS CS4 to straighten the horizon (see handheld!!), adjust contrast and sharpen background.

I’m really pleased the way this turned out and it symbolises a place of happiness and peace for our family. We have it on the wall at home, on canvas (super-size !!!).
