Trust me, I'm not offended. Indeed, I didn't want to offend you...

BTW: Moutain girl is constantly posting HDR images. It's almost impossible to tell them apart from non HDR stuff - Meaning that she's expanded the dynamic range to the point where the shadows and highlights are visible and yet, appear to be what an on site observer would see.

these look great. i really love the mood imparted not only by your processing, but also your use of perspective in shots #1 and #2. thanks for sharing, looking forward to more.

over-the-top is a matter of taste, i find these to be of the good flavor.

Sorry, missed this last night

I can't argue with any of that, I appreciate that we all have different tastes

I've yet to find any rules about the correct way when it comes to processing HDR, what I have noticed is for every one that dislikes the way I process my images I have 10 that love it.

Thanks for your comments

I couldn't see the pics anymore. In any case, I saw them yesterday and thought they are stunning. They looked like the examples I saw in this book and I think should also be published in a book.

Thank you.......... they are still there?,anyway....... funny enough,I only got into photography last year and soon after someone sent me that picture by Pete Carr on the cover, which was the first time I had heard of HDR, that picture looking at the Liverpool Liver buildings inspired me to have a go at it myself.

I did get a landscape version of the first HDR image printed in February's edition of Photography Monthly Magazine, which made my day if I'm honest.

Thanks

Default Vertical distortion

Excellent use of HDR producing a wonderful fantasy effect. The second shows considerable vertical distortion. I had a go at it in PSE to correct this.
