This is an HDR photo, taken from Sounio, Greece during sunrise. We see some interesting crepuscular rays with enhanced contrast and colours. The image is the result of stacking three photos taken on a tripod with different exposures. With HDR photography, if used right one can produce results that are very close to real life scenes as our eyes perceive them. More than often though, most photographers (including myself!) tend to exaggerate with the use of colours and contrast, creating rather painting like pictures.
