Overberg Dawn by hougaard Overberg Dawn by hougaard
This sunrise was back in April, but I wasn't confident about the processing. My HDR wizardry has improved a lot since then so I tried today. The amount of processing applied here is scary, but you've got to experiment sometimes to discover the limitations ey?

Arniston, South Africa. The history log on this is more than 500 steps, to give you an idea. Just a shitload of layer blending modes to mess with the contrast and tones.
