Serenity: The Sun Retreats Beyond The Horizon

Serenity: The Sun Retreats Beyond The Horizon, originally uploaded by TomRaven.

I've been playing with HDR lately. Avoided it for sometime as a lot f HDRs I have seen are just gaudy and unreal and I prefer to try and capture things exactly or as close as possible to the way they actually look.This shot is an HDR created rom two frames with a one stop difference in exposure! Unlike the previous post (also an HDR) I think this one actually captures the reality much closer than a non HDR. I'm aiming to find a subtle HDR effect that helps me capture the beauty and splendor of the sunrises and sunsets here without becoming to unreal or 'trippy' like some of the psychedelic HDR shots I have seen

Here end the works of the sea, the works of love.

Those who will some day live here where we end —
should the blood happen to darken in their memory and overflow —
let them not forget us, the weak souls among the asphodels,
let them turn the heads of the victims towards Erebus:

We who had nothing will school them in serenity.
