[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of my first HDR photos, I am learning this great technique and finding it interesting and not easy, which makes it yet more interesting :)

I think it is very important not to 'overcook' it, specially the colors.
The good thing about HDR is that the 'clumsy' Dynamic Range of the cameras can be improved.

After trying it many times in different ways, finally I was kind of 'happy' with the result, but I am afraid that as I am still rookie, might have overcooked it. However I love the accomplished texture and contrast of the water.
I hope the more experienced TrekLensers can give me some useful tips and their opinion on it. Thanks in advance...

Compliments for your first HDR, I did mine there a few days too ( with CS3 ) not with my camera.
I think it's very good result.
The skyline is perfect, the third, pov too. Nothing to say.
What I like in HDR is the MAGIC light.
So beautiful view.

Hi Galder,
Beautiful sunset in HDR. well presented and composed with great colors and light,
Nice perpective and détails,
great job..and nice contrast ,
Clouds are Amazing..

Superbe couleurs,un endroit magnifique.et j'aime bien la passerelle qui s'avance dans l'eau

A very beautiful picture. I like to have more expressiveness, a good choice and also POV brightness, color and ... inspiration ... A picture worth a maximum of punncte, but my overall assessment.
Best regards

Landscape is very beautiful
Box and has a good composition

Hi Galder,
A nice HDR treatment to this sunset shot! Splendid colors of the phenomenon enhanced with this wonderful technique which I use frequently.
A very sharp image and an even exposure all over!
Beautiful POV with the inclusion of the pier on the right and such a wonderful cast reflection in the slightly agitated water.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

What a wonderful sky!

Wow. This is fantastic Glader. Nice composition with magnificent color and detail. Absolutely beautiful. TFS and have a great weekend. Lori

Hi, Galder. These are amazing results of the HDR. You chose a great point of view and composed it so well. The colors look so real, good clarity and perspective. congratulations.

Hello Galder,
This is very beautiful although maybe a little overglorified...by yourself or by the sun? The fluffy clouds and the jetty leading into the picture give it special appeal. Well done.

Hello Galder ,
Congratulations for your work : this one is really excellent ! The sky is absolutely fabulous ... Ernest

Hi Jon.
A wonderful sun set captured with beautiful framing and strong details which must be HDR but the clean look of the image despite very good sharpness is just amazing work,lovely color tones and beautiful sun set.
My Best Wishes

Beautiful scenery you show us here.
Well composed image with pleasing light and fine colour.
Great work.

Hi Galder..nice work..the difficult thing is to not overuse the technique as you mentioned. I think you did a good job here..nice tones and details...sometimes these shots look better and more natural by converting them to black and white.


Explosive but soothing color combination. Great pov and it has a good dof with sharp details. Nice colors. Well done, tfs.

The first images that I have seen of HDR were not very interesting because what you said the# ivercook" aspect...after i understood that we can play with it...so now I saw very good images in HDR. You did a good job in this good composition...for me sky is perfect., the water is almost there... I have no answers to you but the wish to suppot you in this nice play in HDR because you are there in the point.
um abraço
