It's pretty hard to capture such a magical moment such as this, and I might not even be entirely happy with the result just yet. But, to give you an idea of what majesty Den Helder is capable of, I present to you:
HDR Panorama, captured with the 550D in the Dunes of Den Helder. These windswept scenes are pretty difficult to photograph. The lighting is constantly changing and ghosting is a real issue in the foreground. For this shot I tried to get as much in focus as possible, resulting in three focus distances at f/20. Merged and tonemapped in photomatix, stitched in PTGui, and ironed out the creases in photoshop.
