Salt Creek before Sunrise

First I have to say: This sky is real, no color enhancement. Don't believe ? Watch the original .jpg below.

All I did, was to stack 2 exposures together to a HDR to get more light to the foreground. So, as a side benefit, the picture became a little more contrast, too. That's all.


By the way, some technical details:

NIKON D80 + SIGMA 17-70mm at 17mm

F/18, 1/2 an 1 second, ISO-200

2-exposure-HDR, stacked with PHOTOMATIX,

max. size: 2606 x 2475
