    Howard Simpson said (23 Feb 2008):

    I do shoot some HDR, but not this one. I shot it just at sunrise on a Nikon D200 with a Nikon 24-70 F2.8. I shot it in aperture mode at F22 and 1/6 shutter speed to get the color in the sky and the right focal distance. I made adjustments to the brightness, saturation and contrast with a focus on the sky after the entire picture was leveled. Thanks for the comments.

    I too thought HDR so I thank you a lot for adding the data on this one. Just goes to show that there is a traditional way to capture reality.
