The last rays of this decade

How did you spend this decade? How do you plan to spend the next one?


Our family drove up to my hometown Schuders, located in the Swiss Alps. I left the car on the way, and waited for sunset. The sun was obscured by clouds, but the sky lit up in the blue hour. In the back on the left is the Calanda mountain, made famous by a beer brand named after this mountain.


I processed a soft, a paintery, and a balanced HDR photo from three RAW exposures, blended them selectively, and carefully adjusted the color balance and curves. I welcome and appreciate constructive comments.
