Default Sunset on the rocks

The Santa Ana River flows into the Pacific Ocean here at the south end of Huntington Beach, where large rocks have been piled to keep the river in check following a heavy rain (but "it never rains in Southern California"). Took this just as the sun was setting. A 3-shot HDR with Photomatix Pro.

Amazing shots and pp. The rocks up close give me a sense of awe, power, strength, durability, and maybe foreboding and at the same time remind me of the Paul Simon song where his mama loves him like a rock and hugs him till he's squashed.

Hi Walter,

I like the overall feel of the images as a result of the PP that you've done. However, my eyes are drawn to your 3rd version as the scale of the rocks seem to be balanced better- to my eyes- as well as the background is less a distraction as compared with version 1 and 2.

A very pleasing result.

Zig
