Vivid sunset reflections (311/365)

Sunset over one of the river meanders within Cuckmere Haven, East Sussex UK.


Adding to Sliders Sunday(even though I uploaded it on Saturday for my 365, it was certainly Sunday *somewhere* in the world!)


This is an HDR composite, despite how it looks only a minimal amount of sliding was involved:


Three images at -2, 0 and +2 EV's merged using HDR Pro in CS5

De-ghost applied

Standard "s" shaped curve applied for contrast

image imported into LR3

Exposure grad filter added to sky with a slight saturation increase and exposure decrease(-0.5)

Exposure grad filter added to water area, again slight saturation increase with exposure increase(+0.5)

Small amount of vignetting added.


Because this is HDR, uploading the original image will be a bit difficult.


HSS everyone!
