I shot this image while staying at the Egyptian resort  while on vacation . After getting up and down on almost every building to find the perfect spot so the walking path aligns with the setting sun  finally found the right building , it was difficult but worth it .The heat was extremely intense the sun was right in my face pretty much was sweating bullets and so was my lens but thanks to my previous shot from the pool learned to carry a microfiber cloth with me which saved the shots ,and as always egytian sunsets and sunrises are the best i don’t know if its the desert air or the African continent but there is something special about them .

This is a 9 shot bracketed image  , post processed in photomatix first and then manually blended in the parts that were bad in photomatix like the sun and shadows in the buildings left and right .

Plugins used -nik software  color efex and onone pefecet photo suit to get the contrast and colors right .

Enjoy 😀

This is a shot i did while i was on vacation in Hurghada,Egypt.This particular shot was done in an extremely fast conditions because i was resting near the pool when i saw the sunset  which was incredible and only appeared that day its was like the 9th day i think ,so 9 days the sunset was crap literally sun with no clouds but on this day the Egyptian magic appeared . I ran like a kilometer to my room(huge resort ) which was on the 5th floor no elevator 😀 grabbed my gear and ran like crazy to the pool in all that fast craziness i forgot that the gear was in my pretty cold room  and just as i set up i get my eye to the viewfinder and i see just fog  1-0 for the Egyptian high humidity , thank god for the lens cloth i carry with me saved the shot . Just as it came from nowhere the beautiful sunset was gone in  2 minutes  and is probably the best sunset i have seen in years  hope to get back to Egypt to shoot the pyramids with this kind of sunset in the background .
