Leica X1 sunset shot almost HDR like!

I was working through my huge collection of shots i took during my visit to the Extremedura in Spain. Give me a few weeks and i will show you lots of wonderful shots;->
I made a lot of bracketing rows to turn them later into hdr shots.
this one however was one in a row of 5 shots and it looks lready like hdr.

I have just processed the RAW file in Lightroom 3.4 so it comes form a single RAW file:

Thats a stunning picture Robert, and I see what you mean by an HDR shot.
When you enlarge on the comp screen it looses nothing of its beauty.

The line of clouds just gives it the right impact, even with the sun being very bright the detail in the picture is amazing.
Great shot Robert.

Thanks for the compliments!

The light was fantastic , we were standing on top of an old castle and had to wait for 45 min. Before the restaurant went open. So we decided to wait for the sunset. At 21:00 it was gone below the horizon

That almost look so unreal!

But it is a great shot! I can't imagine that it actually looks like that it real life! Must have been a very breath taking experience.

Thanks for shaing!

Very nice, Robert; I like it very much! It is amazing to have all the details of the ground with that harsh front light!

Re: Leica X1 sunset shot almost HDR like!

Stunning Rob! Interestingly, your own sense of composition together with your skill enabled this shot. Wonderful stuff.

For most though, the overwhelming shortfall of many of today’s better cameras is impeccable live view, so shots like these can be identified quickly and fluently. Perhaps the biggest advance in photography will come when one sees accurately what the photographic result will be as opposed to clearly seeing what’s actually there. Kind regards.

Re: Leica X1 sunset shot almost HDR like!

yes you are very right in this. thats why i also like to use a Leica M9. when looking through the range finder you first think about the final image in your mind and then take the picture to recreate that what you had in mind. Recognising a HDR situation is one of them.

After a 2nd look, I would clone out that spec of dust or faint bird on the top right-center.

Re: Leica X1 sunset shot almost HDR like!

Exactly when I thought I'm getting close to mastering the X1 you need to show off this. This is frustrating

Stunning shot, congrats!

Mike

superb image, but the eye continually goes to that ugly "stain" "spot" "bird"......clone it out.
