thank you vv. alot of the warmth came from the single shot RAW pseudo HDR, which really brought out the colors of the grass and warmed it up a bit.

#2 is a delight to look at. I had to look really close to see any trace of graidient in the sky, which is very faint in any case and not something I would have thought about if you hadn't mentioned it.

I would also like to thank you for this thread, I'm having a lot of trouble with getting good orton-effect pictures, resizing after applying the effect might just be what I've been doing wrong.
thanks alasdair. yes, from time to time i do shoot something in color lol. and yes, your orton effects will do much better if you do it after you have sized properly for presentation. also, be sure to sharpen your sharp layer, maybe even a bit sharper than normal.

I like the last picture better - the simpler frame makes a big difference as well as the processing. I'd be interested in whether the polarizer really makes a difference with skies and HDR - I've had trouble with certain skies even without a polarizer. I would imagine that the wider the lens, the greater the problem would be. Polarizers and really wide lenses can give you really awful results, depending on the angle to the sun.
