    Cumbrian sunrise by Fungal infection, on Flickr

    Popped out for a short trek up my favorite mountain to try and catch the sun.
    It lasted all of 15 minutes. This is a 5 shot hdr . Not as good as i hoped. A better/sharper result i think i could get from 1 raw image.:smile:

    I like your result very much !
    Did you start with 5 RAW-files or with 5 jpgs ?

    That's a really nice image. Love the light on the foreground.

    In other words a very cold, three hour hike in the dark. Most impressive. :smile:

    What software did you use ?
    I'm using NIK HDR Efex, really easy with lots of presets, and impressive possibilities for tweaking. If not done already, give it a try, there's a free trial available. Needs LR or PS (if on PC) as it is a plugin !

    Very nice. Walked across Cumbria last summer, and I daresay it looks even better in the winter-time!
