Gazing the sunset at Mount Athos, Dionysiou monastery. The photo is a High Dynamic Range image (HDR). HDR images consist of a number of differently exposed pictures that allow a greater dynamic range between the dark and the illuminated areas of the image. If used consistently, the result simulates a real world scene with the dynamic range that our eyes are able to perceive. More than often though, the photographer (including myself!) give in to the temptation to greatly exaggerate using colours and contrast, creating picturesque, painting like images.
