I’ve already been told about the “pseudo” (out camera) HDR processing. But what’s the extra benefit from such a long and somehow (IMHO) cumbersome process while that K-x has built-in HDR capability ?
On the other hand, the light and compo are superb but I think the pic exhibits some general blurriness

Taken hand-held looking across the valley from my bedroom window with my rather heavy old 70-210mm lens

– the light was fleeting and there wasn’t time to grab the tripod! A bit blurry as a result, but I was so pleased to have been able to capture this light.



cheers for taking the time to look

To answer Senn's question - the 'in camera' HDR function would have resulted in a 'ghosted' image without the use of a tripod.

Great shot. I like its warm colours, the really special lights and the shape of the tree. Well done.

Yes it's a little blurred but the overall effect is magnificent.
