Evening Escape - Shenandoah National Park, Virginia by 

Sunset seen from Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.

The town of Luray can be seen down in the valley.

Canon 60D. EF-S 15-85mm at 31mm. ISO 100. f/11. Shutter Speeds varied from 1/1600 to 0.3 seconds.

Update 5-05-2011: I have replaced the image with a reprocessed version.

11 shot tripod mounted HDR merged in oloneo Photo Engine. Curves adjustment for color balance and contrast, and photo filter for effect applied in Photoshop. May have overdone the number of exposures, but I was trying to expose the sun properly.

This one has not been cropped as tight on the bottom, leaving more of the foreground. Overall I feel this new version has much better exposure over the entire shot, better color balance, more pleasing colors, a more natural look, and a better compositional balance than the original. Hope you enjoy!
