Photographer's Note

[Motivation]
Long time ago! I've recently returned from a fantastic holiday in Greece..and ofcourse will start uploading photo's from this holiday from now on.
Our holiday looked like this :
30-07 - 02-08 Athens @ aimiliospet his place, it was fantastic. In this way another time many thanks to him and his family!

02-08 - 10-08 Paros
10-08 - 17-08 Syros
And we (=my girlfriend and me) have visited quite some other islands on daytrips with ferrylines.
Well, more photo's will come in time, but let's start at the beginning..

[Photo scene info]
At the first day, the day of arrival in Greece..and Athens (our first time there!) Aimilios took us to Lycabettus Hill. To see the sunset from this hill..and look over Athens city. Amazing! It's so big! And so different as my own metropole..Amsterdam. In Amsterdam you have to be on top of a high building to have such a majestic view..here there is just a hill providing the view! Clear enough..we really enjoyed it!

This is my first attempt at HDR processing, I puzzled the shot together in Photomatix 2.3.1. Also the first time I used this program..ooch! Googled for a tutorial and played a bit with the sliders. Have seen different versions of the same photo, this might not the best..but well let's see..
I hope to learn from the comments from real HDR experts here!

Well I hope you like it, but probably have a lot to learn about this technique! :)
