NIIIICE!! Talk about perfect moment in time to be somewhere. Beautifully captured also MA.
Doesn't look HDR Bambi, just a perfectly exposed/composed shot.

Thank you all. It was a stunning time to be standing there.


I don't have any HDR software anymore ... haven't for sometime now. Although there are some HDR photos I think look good, I personally don't like the absence of the highs and lows in HDR. It steals the light, and in photography ... light is everything.

it is lovely. I only asked because you had such a nice range of light-dark in it. I've seen some hdr that is pretty natural so I just thought I'd ask :)

I've seen some hdr that is pretty natural so I just thought I'd ask :)It really depends on your definition of 'HDR' I guess. For the majority of people it means using specific HDR software to render an image from 2 or more photos.
I find the results usually un-natural in terms of the lighting, usually soft where it shouldn't be, and of course produces Halos that can be difficult to correct.
I guess I often do what is what I call 'Manual HDR' for want of a better term. That is, I use Photoshop layers and masking to blend exposures together as I want. Many of my photos are single exposures though. This one, however, was 2 shots.

If people suspect it's an HDR because of the technical qualities, but are unsure, then I know I've done a good job :)

I think this particular shot only slight trimmed to a panorama would lend itself to a great looking 2-3 foot metallic print.

It possibly would indeed. Thanks.

Awesome shot MA! The reflection is so sharp! It neat that you can also see the lights on in the houses....for me that adds to this one.
