An Evening at the Pinnacles

by Kristi Hines · Australia

This is another shot from Australia. If I had it over again, I would have learned about HDR before going on that trip, but I think despite that I still got some lovely compositions, including this one before sunset.

It’s so tranquil looking. I like how the rays are creeping through the clouds. Very nice Kristi.

A stunning frame that perfectly captures the light rays and beauty of the scenery, the lush foliage that feels so vibrant and alive and the intensity of Mother Natures gifts to us. It feels almost as though I can step into the frame, so inviting and serene.

Outstanding image. I don’t think HDR would do anything to improve it.
