This is one of those lucky shots - lucky in the sense that I was lucky to be where I was when this incredible sunset arrived. This was by far the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. I just love the shape that the clouds took that night, and the colors were just intense. To top it off, I was able to get a reflection in the pond. It was miraculous. This is a 6 exposure HDR taken at f/11, with exposures from +3 to -2. I merged them in Photomatix to create the HDR and then made some adjustments in PSE and Aperture.
On a side note, you may have noticed that I have changed the look of my website. I grew tired of the old look and wanted to refresh it with a new look. I hope you like the new look and would love to hear your feedback!
