Default Christmas at the pier

This is a pseudo-HDR...the same image with 5 exposure levels in Photomatrix Pro. Tone mapped.

I'm undecided about this one. The original could use a little levels adjustment and perhaps some additional contrast but it's really nice. I think the pseudo HDR version is a little over-the-top for me. There's things I like about it - I think I'd like to see something between the original and the HDR, but that's just my taste. There will be others that will like it just as it is. In any case, it is definitely much better than anything I've managed to get when trying pseudo-HDR.

Believe me, the HDR treatment is much more like the real scene, which was spectacular and rich with colors both above and reflected in the water.

Very nice Walter. The hdr gives the image a romatic feel, a place I would like to walk hand in hand with my wife.
