We were walking the grounds of a Hindu Temple outside of Austin, and had wandered inside for a bit to have a look around. It is a beautiful place and very interesting too. It was nearing sunset as we exited the building, and we started walking back towards the parking lot. I saw this little slice of sunset through the columns and really liked how it glowed off the tiles in the floor. After finishing this up, I ran like a crazy man down to the pond and got this shot. It was a beautiful sunset and I was glad to be there.
This is a 5 exposure HDR taken at f/11, with exposures ranging from -2 to +2. The HDR was created in Photomatix and then adjusted in PSE (Curves, Contrast, Unsharp Mask) with a final touch in Topaz Adjust. I use Topaz Adjust quite a bit and really like it. If you want to read more about it, you can see my review of it here.
