Mountains on Fire

Uploaded: December 07, 2010


Yesterday's sunset was UNREAL, I literally had to pull over and get this image, no way I was going to miss it! I'm serious when I say that I did NOT boost saturation on this image at all. I did taken 3 exposures and blend them, but the exposure for the sky was as rich in color as you see here, just not quite as bright. All I did was a little Curves adjustment to boost luminance, and here you have it!

Canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS II, at 200mm. Three-image HDR, handheld (OK, resting on my car door with the window down, lol! IS was ON).
