Sunset in VT – HDR Sunday

Sunset in VT, originally uploaded by anthonli.

Took this picture during dinner with colleagues when the sun sets in the horizon. There are still lots of cloud in the sky as it is still the rainy season.
I tried to merge the 3-shot HDR in both Photomatix and Photoshop CS6, but the result is not pleasing. I think it is because it is shot directly into the sun. Photomatix did a better job than Photoshop CS6 Merge-to-HDR function. CS6 displays some strange patterns around the sun that was not there.
Finally, I did this HDR the old-fashioned method, by layers and masking in CS6 itself. The result is more natural this way.
