Ok a little word on this photo first so you all know what you are looking at.
I said tonight I had tried some new techniques and this is one of them. Basically this is a lake, and those are supports from a bridge you see (think boardwalk) and the setting sun is reflecting in the water between them.
This is an in camera HDR shot as my Sony a550 is capable of doing that with the use of a ND8, Tobacco Grad and Circular polarizer. The full exposure with all images combined is about 3 1/2 minutes long.
Pretty different I have to say, it reminds me a lot of romantic impressionist painters.
