If you want to see how I made this (and how you can too!), visit my HDR Tutorial. I hope it gives you some new tricks!
I arrived into Thailand this weekend and have been in content-creation mode non stop. I did take a chance back at the hotel to process this one picture I thought y'all would enjoy.
(and yes that sun picture is real... it was burning through the bottom while still streaming light over the top).
This picture is of Wat Arun, a famous Buddhist temple in Thailand. I took it from a really cool little Italian restaurant across the way that is attached to a boutique hotel named "Arun Residence". I will stay at this place next time - be sure to get the balcony room at the top if you come... it's just over $100 a night.
