[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
About two weeks ago I drove to Los Angeles, on my way back to San Jose, almost sunset time and few miles on 152 between Hwy 5 and Hwy 101, (I did post a sunset image "Sky on Fire" the hills were glowing. Stopped the car, tripod was under the stuff so I opened the lens wide and took few shots hand held. I like the SUV's in FG. In PP I did contrast, level and HDR toning adjustments. Enjoy!!

Hi Vic,
A rather heavy PP work for this sunset shot. I must admit that I like it as it is! Something different! The four cars with their headlamps on are rendering an interesting base to the whole composition.
Good creative work.

Hi Vic,
I love the intensity HDR brings to the images. Wonderful colors and texture in a beautiful scenery!
