Mom´s View

From a slightly different angle the Salak Mountain is my mom´s view when she is in her kitchen cooking. With a view like this in front of your house, everything is done with "Paz y Amor" (Peace & Love).
The Salak Mountain last erupted in 1938 and it gave birth to Salak Mountain II, Sumbul Mountain and Kawah Ratu. That is why The Salak Mountain is considered a symbol of a mother for the local people. Salak Mountain is now a non-active volcanic mountain and is one of the favorite hiking destination in West Java.
This is a HDR (High Dyanamic Range) type of photography and later processed to another software which helps you tone map your photos called the Photomatix Pro. Basically you need 2 or more photos of the same angle with different exposure to make one single HDR photo and this is where Photomatix Pro will help you with a simple process of tone mapping the colors according to your preference. You can choose to edit the contrast in photoshop or picasa if you see it´s necessary.
Find out how powerful HDR photos can look.
