This was another shot from the other day at Sunset. I really wanted to bring out the amazing colors of the sunset and shooting directly at the sun was hard to get a good exposure especially with the standard canon kit lens I was getting a fair bit of lens flare (Cant wait till I my Sigma 10 -20 mm lens). So I bracketed 3 different exposures all 2 stops apart. I used a cokin ND grad filter to try to keep some of the color in the fore ground.
I really liked the contrasting colors in this shot and the tree made a nice Silhouette
I then used Photomatrix pro to convert the 3 images into a HDR . Final curves and sat were done in PhotoShop.
