Another sunset, just like you have already seen thousands of them. This one is perhaps a bit more dramatic or at least I hope. Specially made for the VFXY theme Sun
. We had a beautiful sunset yesterday and since I have no better idea for this theme I decided to use this image.
TECH-INFO: one RAW file with a telephoto lens. In DxO Optics I developed 6 JPGs with a stop difference. I merged them into a HDR file in Photomatrix. By tone mapping it I got more balanced lighting. In Photoshop I used various masked adjustment layers (mainly curves) to dramatize it bit more. If there would have been more clouds then it should be much easier to make it stronger and more dramatic. Besides that I also had to remove lots of big black dots, which were actually birds, with the healing brush.
