Still practicing on my HDR skills.....or lack of. Please tear it apart and thanks for looking.

Sunset view from La Caleta (Tenerife Island) overlooking La Gomera in the horizon. 5 exposures merged to HDR and tone mapped. Finished off in PS with ghosting correction of the waves and bringing back the sky as it was.

good example of "partial HDR". Leaving the motion of the waves to one exposure was the right thing to do. And the sky looks natural.

From the amount of light, you probably didn't need 5 exposures. I always just go with 3. Easier and faster to process that way.

Sometimes 2 exposures are best. Less movement. The more exposures, the more alignment issues you have, especially in clouds.

Good stuff, keep up the work.

I still have a lot of learning to do. Did you use only photoshop to merge these?

I agree with it can be hard controlling the ghosting of the waves when you shoot more that three images. I had to do some serious masking to get it right. The sky is easier to control but waves and specially on this very windy evening was moving fast.

Im a big fan of subtle HDR use for outdoor landscapes and always try to present what i saw, specially when it comes to reproducing the sky in a natural manner. Thanks for commenting.

I merged and did the tone mapping in Photomatix. PS was used for masking in the original sky and getting rid of the wave ghosting.
