It was on 22/12/2012 at Pulicat Lake , i and 3 of my friends had a small trip towards this lake. This was situated 35 miles away from my home , this was our 1st trip to this place and also this was my 1st DSLR trip in my entire life. I was actually practicing to capture images in a right exposure because i was beginner in photography. Well i was really attracted to this sunset time because not every sunset will be beautiful but for me i felt this set was an awesome one. I suddenly took my tripod and my camera towards this frame. You know i really loved this view. Initially i captured a image unfortunately that image was under exposed i got disappointed , then i scroll down the diode for adjusting a proper exposure,once again it was ruined by over exposing. Then i was fed up and stopped capturing. Someday after i was learning some techniques in photography on web i saw their was a beautiful techinque which was used in landscapes called HDR. I was studying about the technique and i understood that , HDR is single photograph which was processed by combining the same photo in different exposures. Suddenly i thought we have something related to this , and i started to combine my two Underexpose and Overexpose images with the help of CS5 with HDR Plugin. After all i processed i really got tears in my eyes.. Because i never imagined before that i could capture these types of images. And finally this turns "MY 1ST HDR" So this was the story behind in this photography.
