sorry about the title, I goofed. I'm entering a photo contest and need help deciding which one is better and how to edit the better one. I like the overexposed one better because of the water effect!!

Thanks!

I wanted to do a blended exposure for this one but after pulling the pictures into photoshop I saw that they are taken from a slightly different angle. To do a blended exposure they need to line up excatly. So instead I used the clone brush and selected a area on the first shot and carfully matched that same spot on the second picture. I then cloned the waterfall from the first shot onto the second shot. Here is my result.

here is my try:

- create two layers with the two images, mo matter if they are slightly displaced. Lighter one upper layer.
- use the shadow highlight tool to tune the trees on the darker one and the water on the lighter one
- apply a layer mask hide all on the top layer
- use the brush tool with black color on the mask to reveal tre trees and the distant part of the falls that are overexposed too

I thought I'd have a quick play to. I used iacopo's as a base to start from. Used a combination of edge preserving smooth, edge enhancing, saturation and colou enhancements.

Ferny, this looks like a painting. It gave me an idea, what do you think.
