I still remember

It was a very colorful sunset and, although light was amazing, it kept changing very fast. I found myself looking around quickly between shots to see where the explosion of colors was happening and had to compose my shots rather quickly by my standards. Luckily I am happy with some exposures and this is one of them.

Taken with Canon 40D, Tokina 12-24mm @ 12mm f/18 ISO 100 and a polarizer. Manual focus, exposure and white balance.

This is a combination of 3 shots exposed respectively for the sky, sea and rocks and merged manually in Photoshop CS3 to mimic the effect of a ND Grad filter. The purpose of this method is *not* to give to the picture an "unatural" HDR look but just to save on the cost of ND Grad filters

I really like the effect of the three exposures, each with a specific area of concentration... I am going to try to remember to apply the exposures with a bit more thought... thanks for the inspiration!!!
