Cornfield sunset

    Newer Older

    The setting sun paints the sky beyond a cornfield in northern Illinois. A blended shot of two exposures - one for the sky and one for the cornfield - blended in Photo Shop. Poor man's HDR.

    An earlier attempt at shot blending can be found here.

    More on my photo blog, Points of Light.

      only two different exposures but far better than many full HDR images. You've done a great job.
