Nature In HDR Photo Contest Winners
Congratulations Grand Jury Winner “Okraj” by arkadiuszmakowski
“It’s a really fantastic photo with great warm light, great vista and which is cleverly composed using layers. Clouds in the distant valleys make it really atmospheric one. It’s a scene anyone hiking in the mountains would love. Post-processing on this image is also spot on – it’s there but the photo isn’t overprocessed.” – Wojciech Toman
