    Great shot, but can you do me a favor and add some additional information on the HDR process? Things like, handheld or tripod, how many exposures (if you have the setting even better), and what software was used. Once added, please resubmit so that I can accept into HDR Photography (3 Photos per 24hr-day) MUST INCLUDE HDR DETAILS


  • Oh thank you Joe, will do.
