Golden Greek Sky

Featured photo – Golden Greek Sky

Yesterday I shared classic example of blue hour shot so today I would like share image taken during golden hour. Also in Chania, Greece.

It’s an HDR image from 5 exposures, tone mapped in Photomatix Pro 5 using Tone Compressor. I decided to replace water with -2 EV exposure, as I really liked texture and sun reflection in it, using a bit less known feature of Photomatix Pro. During tone mapping, just above preview image there is “Selection Mode” checkbox. After clicking it, you can draw selection and then right-click it and replace the selected area with one of your source images. It works really great!
