This is an HDR shot composed of 3 photos in different exposures and then processed in Photomatix using Fusion technique.

Some facts about Lokrum:
Lokrum is one of the islands off the city of Dubrovnik about 600 metres from the coast stretching from the northwest to the southeast, in the Adriatic Sea, Croatia. Its highest point above sea level is at 96 m.
The Austrian archduke (and short-lived Emperor of Mexico) Maximilian once had a holiday home on the island. A monastery and a botanical garden survive from his era. On this peak stands Fort Royal Castle, which was built by the French, though it was later named "Maximilian's Tower" by the Austrians.
According to legend, Richard the Lionheart was shipwrecked in 1192 after returning home from the crusades and was cast safely ashore on Lokrum. He pledged to build a church on the island but, at the plea of Dubrovnik citizens, the church was built on the nearby mainland instead.
