Shooting against direct sunlight 1 ... HDR

I wouldn't advice you to try such a shot unless you've got a trustworthy DSLR camera and be absolutely certain of what you're doing !!!

 

It was early in the afternoon, the sun was still very high in the sky and it was rather scorching ... circumstances under which it is rather impossible to capture a visually pleasant shot ... But then I had this beautiful seascape scene in front of me and I just had to take the shot, even though the sun was standing still just behind my main theme ... So I set my D90's exposure compensation to -0,67 EV and adjusted my shutter speed to 1/1600 s ...

 

To tell you the truth the photo came out a lot better than I expected ... So much better that I tried some more of those risky but amazing captures, of shooting directly against the burning "fireball", to a couple of additional beautiful landscapes I happen to come across henceforth ... So just bear with me for a little while my friends ....

 

By the way the above seen landscape can be found at a rather difficult to approach point of Rodopi's seashore ... At an area called Maronia ...

 

EXIF: NIKON D90 with Nikon Nikkor 18-55 lens, Manual mode, f 6,3, Focal Length 22 mm, ISO 200, use of ND HOYA X2 filter, exposure compensation forced to -0,67 EV, HDR photo made by only one RAW shot, manual exposure setting, auto focus mode, shutter speed 1/1600 s, no tripod, flash did not fire ...
