For this week’s photo challenge, I have decided to share a sunset shot which was taken more than 6 years ago. I was shooting into the sun and have combined 3 bracketed shots to produce this HDR (High Dynamic Range) photo. I rarely do HDR photography now, but I was very addicted to it during my early days as a hobbyist photographer. This is one of my first photos and I was probably very proud or had a false sense of achievement. It is embarrassing to look at it now because I can see many flaws in my technique, and yet it is very satisfying to know that I have come a long way.
P.S. If I had taken just a single shot directly at the sun, then I would have ended up with a silhouette photo and it would not be possible to see the vibrant colors in the foreground.
