Here’s a shot I took last weekend while in the flint hills of Kansas. It was one of those “just have to shoot the sunset” type that I can’t seem to pass up. I was shooting to the left of this view along a hillside will the sun was slowly going done behind some clouds. I ended up taking 10 shots of this scene at various exposures. This is a blend of 6 of those images done up with photomatix pro 3.2. Additional processing in cs4 with a topaz detail layer helped to finish this off. I punched up the setting in Topaz to enhance the somewhat grunge hdr look. Hey a guys has to have fun sometimes.
