Maybe we finally see more real estate used. 2 massive pieces of dark grey background to the right and left NOT used when using browser in actual size.

On photo Sun Set in Calpe Spain in the Sunset - Heavily post-processed V challenge (1 comment in total)

Needs to be 0.5 seconds of shutter speed.

Took 5 copies of the image and modified the exposures in Aperture for each image. The end result was -2, -1, 0, +1 and +2
Selected all and used photomatix to create this HDR.

In reply to:

ranalli: I think it's a nice image but up close there seems to be a lot of noise concentrated in various areas throughout the image. Is that DPR doing this to your picture?

This image was one of my first images that I processed with photomatix AND I also had just started with photography. I can't remember exactly what happened to the image but you are right there is a lot of noise in the image at close inspection. Definitely not DPR doing this. Rookie mistakes :-)

Thank you. I was a strange summer night as I remember. Really hot day, hot night, no wind just clouds

In reply to:

jezsik: Nice shot! Now, can you tell us what you did to get that effect?

That is a very good question but unfortunately I can't remember all the steps involved. It was taken April last year.
The only thing I do remember is putting a lot of contrast into the image and removing highlights. The sky was actually way more orange, but how I made it this yellow colour I can't remember. Sorry I can't provide anymore detail.
