From my favourite sunset site during my (nearly) daily walk.

HDR: a combination of tree exposures +- 2ev

Ten minutes later unprosessed one can be seen in my todays TE -post. I like it better than this one.

I did this HDR just because of yesterdays lively discussion of the orange colored HDR. This one is left more as it was. Just the texture is overwhelming.

Any comments and hints welcome.

No me convence la composicin, demasiado sim騁rica cuando el cielo reclama un mayor protagonismo, pero es una imagen preciosa de todos modos. Felicidades,

Hi Pentti,

I'm not well-versed in HDR, but I think you've done a good job here. The clouds are very dramatic against the golden sky. I like the POV, with the receding curve of objects (platforms?) in the water. TFS

Great result of HDR work here Pentti, I like the intense of colors with amazing reflections. My minor comment is your central placement of horizon, I would have crop a bit on the top or bottom to balance the composition (just my thought). Still, you've done a great job here. Well done.


oooooh wow!!! what a magnificent sky Pentti!
I love those colors and the clouds!
What I also like very much here is the reflection and the clarity of the water in the front. I think I can even see the rocks under water... Cool!

It's been years ago since I last visited Finland... we have friends living in Imatra... Not too far from where you took this shot....

By the way... I think this is really an excellent HDR! I'm usually not a very big fan of HDR, because in some cases the colors and lighting are quite overdone...but not here, it all looks quite natural here.
A lovely shot!


Your beautyful photo is what photography is for me;

painting with light.

Great painting!

Great photo and a great note too - thanks for both!

Here's a good example of how central placement of the horizon can work well, too.

Excellent work


Nice hdr shot with nice composition and colours
warm regards

Hi Pentti
Excellent texture and reflections. The HDR has produced quite a dramatic effect.

Hi Pentti,
fantastic colours. I like the reflection of the sky on the lake.

Great shot. Very nice colors .
Regards Zoran

Hi there!

Greetings Pentti,
I think this is a good HDR,I like the dramatic effect you have achieved by using it,my only negative is the small cloud at the right hand side,IMHO,it seems not to blend with the rest of the image.What a scenic walk to look forward to, each evening, & have this sort of landscape to capture.
