Photographer's Note

The corniche road, Amalfi Drive, provides one of the world's hairiest, most worthwhile motoring experiences—veering vertiginously around the jagged edge of the Lattari Mountains, twisting and tunneling and hairpin-bending, providing vista after stunning vista of gorges, bridges, cliffs plunging vertically into the glassy Thyrrenian Sea, and sudden improbable villages tucked picturesquely into the landscape. Of course, the designated driver will miss the scenery, being too busy concentrating on the white knuckles: John Steinbeck, who used to come here in the '50s, claimed the Amalfi Drive was "carefully designed to be a little narrower than two cars side by side."

This the result of 5 exposure, ranging from over exposed to under exposed.
All were taken with aperture f/7.1 and different speeds: 1/20, 1/50, 1/125, 1/250, 1/640
The exposures are later combined in a technique called HDR (High Dynamic Range) to include the most details from all exposures. This way it is possible to get details in all areas of the image - both dark and light.

The result of HDR often looks very interesting. I am not completely satisfied with this one since it seems my tripod was not stable enough and sharpness isn't good especially near the skyline.
