Thanks very much Brian. I use Photomatix Pro 3. Seems to be the best out there right now. It's easy to "overdo" the HDR effect so I'm pretty conservative on the applications to get a "natural" look. :) I can't remember what the advise was I gave on sunset shooting but I'm glad it worked for you.

Best regards, Tom

Очень! Очень красиво!

wow!you live in a beautiful part of the US Tom!i would dearly love to upgrade to dslr,are you a Nikon or Canon fan?

Tom on December 29, 2009

A late "Thank You" to GIANG SƠN, callagan46 and GM for the kind words and appreciation of this image. :)

Thanks very much steandeb. I am a Nikon shooter. This was taken with my old trusty D70 but I've since "upgraded" to a D300. You can't go wrong with a Canon either.(I have three brothers who shoot them:)

Happy New Year from Virginia,

thanks tom ,so whats the best entry level dslr nikon then,i will follow your trusted opinion!

Tom on December 29, 2009

Well Steve the D3000 would be the least expensive NEW dslr. A used D40 would be cheaper with less megapixels(same sensor as was used in the image above). It really depends upon your budget. If you can afford a few more pounds then I'd go with a new D90 that would add video as well. Good luck and let me know if you have any more questions. Also please check out my website at You can contact me there as well.

All the best, Tom

Thank you very much Tom. The HDR has a more subtle look under mid-day sun. :)

Hello Tom L., I could not recognize at first sight that this is HDR. At second... maybe colours are little bit unusual, but for me it is mastered technique! And magnificent capture too!
