After some rain, hail and snow this morning, the sun came! Made a walk in the dunes. It was cold (warm for some of you) and windy, but very nice with all that sunlight. Can you see the man somewhere down there?

I want to learn creating HDR-images and here's an experiment. Below the original and a B&W version
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/69684/120/641325.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/69684/120/641325.jpg', '/') + 1) . '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/69684/120/641331.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/69684/120/641331.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
Saved this image with 3 different exposures, generated a HDR image and did some tone mapping.

Before I read your comments I noticed the shadow detail, and that certainly is due to the pseudo HDR effect. The grass in the foreground really makes the shot for me; I get the effect that it's being blown by the wind, which can be seen also in the clouds.

When you get a chance try some bracketed shots and merge to HDR. I've found that different programs give different results for the HDR and the tonemapping.

This picture has somewhat of a surreal effect. I can't stop looking at it. So many nice textures you captured. Superb job! I think I see the guy.

Beautiful shot Henk-Jan (I hope that's right). Great job on the HDR. Love all the textures in this - the foreground grass is so wispy, and the fluffy clouds feel so soft and gentle.

I love this tonemapped version, it has so much texture and wonderful contrast in the sky! Thank goodness for HDR :-)

Wow! You've really had the elements there this morning. What a lovely place to walk. Really like the B & W version. It seems to enhance the DOF and give more of a vastness to the terrain.

What a beautiful scene. Yep, see that little man way down there. I'm not sure if I prefer the colored or the BW version, they're both very compelling.
Love the whispy nature of the dune grasses, and that sky is awesome.

I think it looks fantastic!! I've been wanting to try HDR really bad for some time now, I just need to get the right software. Well done!

Very nice landscape! I really like the grass right in front.

What a beautiful place to visit. Personally, I am struggling with the current HDR craze. I am wondering if you could not have captured this same image with just a bit of patience and adjustment with the camera.

Still, you have captured a lovely site, bravo.
