Damn.. I didn't have a tripod with me..

I didn't expect that I'd be out of the house the whole day and then some. So all I had was my camera with me.. and I've got no one to blame but myself.. and maybe the misses. Hehe!!

But after all that I think I've caught myself a good one. Though with a tripod, the blue hour comes to mind.

You see I was planning on shooting the sunset after a day out with my wife, son and the in laws. The final stop was Hua Ho Delima branch and it was already 6 pm. The sky was turning yellow with a tint of orange in the horizon. My heart started pounding heavily and there was no way I could send them home and go off again in time for the sunset.

'Do you mind if I just drop you off here and pick you up later?' I said to my wife with droopy eyes and a pityful smile. She looked at me with one eyebrow touching the sky.. then smiled and said sure..

One second later I was out of sight. Do I have the coolest wife or what?

I suggested to oXp about this place while I was still in Singapore. I guess he wasn't interested. Too bad huh? Hehe!!

Two sets of 5 photos each for HDR and vertorama. I then didn't like the look of the sky in HDR so I blended back the original into the photo and set the opacity to about 60% to get a little bit of the HDR sky back into the photo.

One other thing.. thanks for the feedback on my last post. I was hoping for more but you guys seem to like what I did as well as eager to learn. We'll have to wait and see if there will be a tutorial.. Hehe!!
