The Night Before Christmas

I’m posting today an HDR image that I took recently during a trip. Granted, the subject might be resembling more of a Grinch than a christmas dwarf, but somehow the colours are quite fitting to the nativity season, so I take this opportunity to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and thank everybody for your visits to my blog! Hope to see you all again in 2014.
As to the image itself, it consisted of a set of 7 brackets taken with a 50mm lens. They were processed in photomatix to obtain the HDR, which was then finalised using photoshop for the final post-processing steps.
