Well, the purpose of the first image wasn't the real HDR effect, I just wanted to bring out the details, and made the lightning as close as I could to a standard photo. But I did get more details, and I thought I'd might as well post it as an HDR.

Nice pic. Love the curves on that building, and the tower.

Dunno....?

I had to choose between the light sky or dark rocks - I chose the rocks. Had I chosen tonality in the sky, the rocks would have been too dark and without texture.

Sometimes you just can't get it right - no matter what you do.

Default HDR of foliage:

...to photograph foliage for HDR is a difficult task, unless it's totally calm - otherwise the movement of the leaves and subsequent gosting in the pictures is too much for PhotomatixPro to handle.

I think I might have gotten (just) away with this one....

For some reason that black gate is very noticeable. Other than that nice shot.

It's because there is a white marbeled fountain behind it - I think. The only white object in the picture, apart from the clocks face.

Thank's Bynx!

Default Boats on the river:

I have always wantet to post this HDR of the river, just a few miles from where I live. I have always liked the scene (but then I have a passion for boats and almost anything else that floats...) with the low sun, the blue sky and fresh colors in the crisp and clear autumn-air.

I's first yesterday that I found the time to clone away this annoying pice of gangway from the boat upstreams (on the right). Being such a big part of the picture to clone, I was hesitating the chore. But, alas, using the Spot Healing Brush Tool in Elements 7 it was no sweat at all - and far easier than I expected.




Late September on the River:

As it is a HDR-rendering I will post the middle exposure for you to see as well, plus so you can see what part I had to clone away:

One only comment W. I would have liked to see the whole prow of the first boat.

lovely shot of the river, although I don't see any necessity for HDR in this shot at all.

No, Acapulco - You are right! No need, really - just som more 'glow' in the colors, that's all...


Hmmm..... - well how about the next shot then - this one really needs HDR, doesn't it...?






And, as usual. The middle exposure for comparison:
