the classic Oia sunset on Santorini island
yep its a bit of a cliché but its very pretty..
used Photoshop's fake HDR to bump up the underexposed areas. but since the sun's pretty low already there weren't too much post-processing required (to kill the excess light or to uplift those shadows...)

Hi Cheuk Hin,
A superb shot of this beautiful place. You have made a wonderful photo with well managed light along with very good sharpness. The reflection of the sun is fantastic. I am totally agreed with Hercules' comment about your photo. (He has also shown us some of the most beautiful photos of Santorini and beautiful Greek villages).
Very well done my friend.

Maybe a cliché but stil a gorgeous view, with the light well managed to have perfect visibility both in the sunny parts and i nthe shadows.

One of the most amazing villages presented on beautiful sunset light. Contrasts here are quite extreme, but you've tackled them well. Use of HDR is not obvious, quite contrary, the result looks natural to my eyes.

Classic indeed! Fantastic exposure almost shooting at the sun! But what makes this special is the hue of setting sun on the white buildings....and of course the balanced framing!
