We all know that HDR's are spectacular. But there's a problem here. We use hdr to get close to what we see with the eye. I totally doubt that the sky becomes like this on a sunset, and believe me, I've seen lots of sunsets.
The problem is that this photo has been overmanipulated. We can observe the burned parts of the photo, and it's a pity, this photo has potential. HDR is okay, but not used in excess. And by saying this, I refer to mr. =ScorpionEntity, who told me once to try to make the picture as simmilar as reality.
It is, nonetheless, a spectacular picture, but it's overprocessed, and it becomes a manip. Too much red, too much burn.
The impact is, nonetheless, impressive.
