Yep HDR suited the sky and the colour of the chair, it's made of stone and ad a great texture. The weather wasn't playing fair though as it was blowing an absolute gale so we couldn't even admire the view for very long without getting sand blasted. :D

I was hoping for the perfect sunset for Octobers comp. things never work out as you plan though.. :(

Oh yes, unfortunately :(
I actually had two problems with the October assignment, the first being that one of my SD cards was not being read by the computer, and the second one was that when I got the chance to see the perfect sunset for the assignment, I didn't have my camera with me for security reasons (lets just say that the place I was in wasn't the safest place in the world)

By the way, I never imagined the chair was stone, I guess I should've looked at the pictures at full resolution :?

I like the first shot in color a lot...great composition. The second i think looks nicer in b&w. looks like a comfy chair

What a brilliant piece of artwork. 8) First look I thought, `who'd dump an old armchair in such a lovely location?` :lol:

Will have to check my other photos, completely forgotten but I think it was simply a note saying "arm chair by someone". :D
