if you know a few things about digital photos, you won't need me to tell you that this is an hdr image. if you don't know what that is, it's a combination of a series of exposures, on this occasion three. because i was shooting towards the sun if i'd have just taken one shot then i'd have to choose between the sky being really blown out and over-exposed, or the foreground being really dark and under-exposed. by shooting both of those variants, and one in the middle, i was able to combine the three so you can see the details in the whole image. as this isn't a natural view from a photograph, hdr images tend to look a bit unreal. i'm not usually a fan of this look, at least i prefer it when it's toned down a little. but on this occasion i decided to push it a little further and create something a little more hyper-real than normal.
