Photographer's Note

At Half Moon Bay, CA, the sun set with a warm color spreading across the waters and sand. Deep blue ocean waves crashing on the beach, the dynamic water reflected the golden rays of light into the camera.

I took two exposures and manually blended them in PS (this is more like a grad filter than an HDR).

My opinion of this shot: I think it's technically perfect - sharp and vibrant. However, the composition is not as good. The ocean line is right down the middle, the sun is dead center, and most conspicuously, there is no point of interest on the flat part of the sand.
