Sunset over Belfast Lough

Sunset over Belfast Lough
Photo Information
Monday evening was bright and sunny so I drove down to the Loughshore at Holywood (County Down) in the hope of a nice pic!
I bracketed three exposures and HDR'd them in Affinity Photo (trial version).

This is very nice - the HDR doesn't look over-cooked to me (which is good IMO!)

Everything "works" in this one. Congratulations on a honey of a photo.

Excellent, especially if you can make Holywood look good 😁

The clouds came out nicely for you.

Monday evening was freezing cold, it looks warmer here!

This really works well and, as has been said, the HDR isn't overpowering
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Affinity offers 5 HDR presets, I chose 'detailed' over 'natural' or 'dramatic'. It's tempting to go over the top with HDR but I'd try to persuade myself to choose a more natural effect. I was lucky with the sky as another shot I took pointing down the lough has a uniform blue sky.

What a lovely result!
