Sunset in Oia, Santorini.

Here is my version of the sunset shot in Oia. This is a blend of 3 shots, 1.3 to 20 seconds, processed as follows:
1) Reduce noice on all 3 raws.
2) Create HRD in Photomatix
3) Blend using Exposure Fusion, sliders set to produce the most natural looking image while still showing some detail in the very dark areas.
4) PS smart sharpen.
5) PS burn the bottom
6) Nik Brilliance and warming
7) Nik Indian summer to warm th elights, masked to not affect the rest.
8) Nik sunlight, brushed over the buildings to add more light
9) Nik Glamour Glow to remove detail in the dark areas.
10) Detailed curves lightening pn windmills.
11) Dodge buildings that were too dark.

Greek Islands

A Country of Many Surprises
Unique Location

The birthplace of democracy and mythical gods, greece is captivating storybook in itself. Modern greece is a land mass of 6,000 islands, only 227 of which are inhabited. These inhabited islands are where the flora and fauna as well as the people are truly and vastly different, yet the grecian culture is surprisingly strong and united. Being a mountainous country, most of her people live along the coastlines and it is this charm of coastal living that attracts greek and foreign visitors alike. Get off the beaten path to the usual greek cities such as athens, and explore greece’s many islands, clustered into eight groups: the northeastern aegean islands, the sporades, evia, islands of argosaronic, the cyclades,the dodecanese, crete and the ionian islands.
