This from last evening at the Melville Caves. What a spectacular vista and scene to shoot a Sunset HDR.
While awaiting the sun to be in the perfect position, one could hear the Cockatoo’s, the Corella’s and the Kookaburra’s in the valley below singing in unison. A small bushfire during the day was casting the smell of burnt gum throughout the valley as well. What a perfect setting.
Now hopefully the HDR will turn out just as perfectly. Would have liked to arrive a bit earlier so as to get set up sooner, a bit of a climb to get into position over rocky ground, but I suppose I can always go back should this one not turn out.
Trey Ratcliff’s video below describes the capture and post-processing techniques, which motivated me to find just this exact type of spot to practice on, and when I spotted it up at the Melville Caves last night I thought wow perfect! Fingers crossed it will turn out just as good as the ones in his video when finished.
