Sunset in the mountains 2 by DostorJ Sunset in the mountains 2 by DostorJ
Montes de Toledo :XD:

HDR from 3 shots (0, +2, -2)

I know the sun is just in the middle of the image, completely against the rule of thirds =), but I didn't want to loose the details from the trees left/right, "unbalance" the clouds, or losing part of the path... I think it helps to "center" the vision, but maybe I'm wrong...
Too bright?

It is not too bright, and perhaps it would be better to place the sun differently. However, you did a great job with the light and color, because it is not easy to capture so many colors of the terrain when picturing the sun directly.

Beautiful capture. The composition with the sky and the foreground is nice and the glow is lovely along with the colors.

im not a big fan of "nature-photography" but this is one unique.. very unique shot.. I love it and I love the colors.. the sun being centered is not bad at all it's good as long as it serves the photo and the feeling behind it.. I love it totally.. and no I dont think it's too bright :D

Hooray HDR! I love the dark of the trees and hills and the dark of the sky being separated by the lighter color created by the sun. I actually rather enjoy that it is centered also. Wonderful capture!

Oh, awesome sunset! Don't worry about the rule of thirds, "rules are made to be broken".

By the way, what software did you use for this? I always manually blend my HDR's in GIMP, I've never been able to get results this good from an HDR software package.

Yes, you're right, rules are made to be broken ;)
I use Photomatix Pro to "create" the HDR, and later move the image to PS/LR for final edit
