This is an HDR image, it might not look like it, but getting an exposure like this while shooting into the sun would be impossible. This photo has a lot of potential but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it. I took some creative license and added some textures, not sure if I like it. I might have to go back and reprocess it later with a fresh eye.
