Sunset over the Zambezi and hills of Zambia, Mana Pools October 2013.   The birds flying above the sun are quellia, returning home to roost in Zambia. Huge flocks of quellia were an unusual feature

She jumped onto the car - but unfortunately I hadn't thought about the shot beforehand otherwise I could have positioned the car better before she climbed on.

@@Whyone? yes, but manual HDR, ie that I blend the exposures myself in Photoshop, giving me more control over the look&feel so it doesn't look like those "psychedelic wet-dreams" you often see online, but more in keeping with how it looked to my eyes and the emotions I experienced when standing there. :)

Well you certainly did a great job @@Morkel Erasmus

 

I know what you mean about so many people / software packages 'over-doing' HDR, giving it a very bad name with may photographers.

Not the greatest sunset, but for for me the vehicle and the dust set the scene so well.
