[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My second attempt at HDR images - starting to like it but it takes a lot of work.

This is one of many shots I took in Antelope Canyon which, except for the tourists and photographers is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been, but they let far to many people in there...

I managed to catch three rays of light in a row with enough time to shoot five brackets before anyone stepped into the shot.

I really like the softness of the light and the deep colors the long exposures make possible...

Just a word of advice - do not enter the canyon without weather sealed gear; the sand gets in everywhere!

How do you like it?
