The setting sun off the northern California coast is a work of art! Took my breath away. ___________ Here's some fun trivia about this shot. It was a spur of the moment capture. I was at a beach party and had just my Canon 60D with my 24-70L. I saw that the sunset was going to be amazing and so I scampered on down the shoreline to some cliffs. I climbed up and down and around until I found an excellent cove that was sufficiently hidden from the rest of the world. I didn't have a tripod so I just set my camera to burst mode, turned on bracketing, and worked really hard on holding my breathe! This final image is 3 shots at -2, 0, +2. Doing this hand held proved difficult indeed. I have a lot of sets that won't see the light of day to prove it! I used HDR Efex Pro to do the merge and tweaking - then Photoshop for some contrast adjustments and what not. I had fun taking and editing this and I'm glad you enjoy it! Thanks again for thinking my work is cool beans!
