Here are two HDR's of yesterdays sunset. They were made with two exposures, four stops apart. Due to the amount of light, I had to take long exposures, lasting several seconds. This is why there is such a big gap between the two exposures used. That way, on only one picture the clouds were visible and therefore there is no ghosting near the edges of the clouds.
I created two exposures from each rawfile, so that I had 4 jpeg files all two f-stops apart. I blended them with Photomatix and did a lot of processing in Capture NX afterwards. Hope you like it:
ESP-did you have a slow shutter speed on that shot to get the water "mist like"?
I slowed down the shutter speed pertty slow and then timed it to open right as the wave started coming in. I ended up getting wet a few times trying to get a little too close but I ended up with some fun shots. I have a bunch more on flickr.
