a new day by ariseandrejoice a new day by ariseandrejoice
I must admit I have not often gotten up early enough to catch a sunrise... but what a divine time it was to do so on this awesome morning! The stillness of the early morning twilight, the invigoration as the light plays its way into full view... just a delightful time of day!

Canyonlands in Utah, processed with Dynamic Photo HDR.

Nice composition and really great job with the HDR. The rays of sunshine are amazing.

Beautifully crisp. I like the composition, and the crepuscular rays are stunning.

It is, isn't it? English has some fantastic words. I like 'sesquipedalian', which describes a person who uses long words just to show off... :P

Anyway, thanks for sharing the photo. It really is lovely.

Well I've decided no matter how much I try to keep it "realistic", vision is a subjective experience and there really is no shared reality to what we see individually. Thanks for your comment! :D

I always remind my self that I am creating an image and not just taking one. So in the end it is what is in my mind's eye that matters most.

No filter, just playing in Photoshop to try and communicate the subjective experience of being there... :)

I'm not sure your new software has been quite so kind to this one, to be honest - it all looks a bit too unreal for my taste. But Arise and Rejoice indeed :D

This is beautiful. I would love to see the original though as, if you don't mind me saying, I prefer some of your less manipulated work.

excellent job though.....I'm just a purist :giggle:

Thank you - I understand. This photo just seemed to lead me to an end product that was quite dramatic and processed - I may give it a go another day and see what happens. Thanks for your comment! :)

Wow, That is just beautiful. What I don't get is some of bigger photographer here at DA don't care to much for HDR and I'm not sure why. Looking at this image, to me is more then beautiful.
