Sunset in Mexico

Daily photo – Sunset in Mexico

Today I would like to share high dynamic range image I took in Mexico during late sunset. I took 8 exposures but ended up using only 4 of them (as other 4 didn’t really contain any additional details). I’m pretty happy with the light and colours here. The scene is very calm thanks to using neutral density filter.

If you would like to learn how to create such images yourself, make sure to read my free HDR tutorial.
