Yes, indeed, they do show up. Very nice palette, Herb. Rich picture with many dimensions

And there is a path for us making it easy to step into the picture. Very welcoming. Thank you

Lovely and somewhat pleasantly familiar : ) You might also try exposure blending next time for the very scene. Just two exposures will suffice!

Here's my take following the instructions in the link above. Not a day and night difference, of course. Yet, I belive real exposureswith the camera can do a lot better.

Thanks Bahadir, I'm trying that technique - to the extent that PS Elements version 2 may be capable of it. My first effort involves varying the opacity of the darker of the two layers (something I didn't realise I could do till I'd read the site you linked to). It seems to work, though of course I don't have a dark and a light original to work from. Here's the result -

Well done, mate! Actually the process is so plain that, I believe, it could be handled with anyPS version.Ioften find the layers blendingtechnique to yield even more natural results than the HDR. Anyway,a retake will bemuch betterof course thancreating two exposuresfrom the same original at PS, ah! preferably before the flowers fade away; and your backyard richly deserves it: ) Btw, I'd also suggest you to shoot raw for the images to go into the blending.

RAW, eh? I've not yet tried RAW, and the little Canon A300 that took this picture can't record in RAW, but my Nikon 8800 can, so I'm going to experiment with it. Looking at the Nikon's instruction book, I see that it's RAW format files are around 12 megabytes. To me that's sort of mind-boggling....
