A Sunset HDR Outing to Maitlands

A group of us decided to go and shoot a few sunset photos out at a place called Maitlands, outside Port Elizabeth (South Africa), but to our disappointment, the clouds came over and was completely overcast and the sun was gone! The light was not to bad, so we did some HDR shots instead and these were the best of my shots for the day.  These were merged together in picturenaut and completed with The Gimp.
This one is a picture of the dunes in the fading light:

An Orange Sunset

A picture of a sunset taken in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.  I tried my hand at framing this picture and feel the result came out relatively well.  To do such framing was actually quite easy and produces pretty good results.  In order to do this I search around on Google for tutorials showing how to create frames under The Gimp. Gimp is a very good graphics package usually used in place on Photoshop as is it open source and doesn’t cost anything to use. Goto gimp.org to download the program for nothing.
