Featured photo – Phra Nang Beach in B&W
Uff I’m really busy once again (it happens every few months) but should soon have some time for this blog again (and I have some quite exciting plans for it) and to shoot some new photos.
Today I would like to share one more HDR image from Phra Nang beach in southern Thailand that I took earlier this year. This time it’s a black & white image, converted from tone-mapped image created with Photomatix, using excellent Topaz BW Effects plugin.
