That is a beautiful edit on a beautifully composed pic .

I think the sun is behind the cloud not behind the temple I can't really tell for sure. In any case, I think you've got the exposure perfect.

I'll try to remember that when shooting against the sun on a sky with some clouds, wait also to shoot with the sun behind a cloud. I like the effect on your photo if indeed the sun is behind the cloud.

That really is a beautiful picture. Did you get the final results using iPhoto? If so, well done! You got a good results out of it - looks like you've already gotten a better handle on the program than I did.

Yes it was all done with iPhoto and Photomatix Pro. I used a single JPEG and duplicated it 4 times to have 5 JPEG's with different exposures. i played around with the eposure and the black and white point until i got the picture that i like thed most. Next time i will shoot in RAW, maybe the results will be better.

You may want to check if your current iphoto has the A550 raw plug ins. If not there are couple of updates on the apple site for iphoto 09 with raw plug ins.

You may want to try out the new aperture 3 free trail, there is allot of iphoto interface options that they brought form Iphoto which I really like. And it gives you way more editing options then iphoto. But I would hold off for at least a month before getting the full version. I dl it yesterday. And it has a crashing problem when you get heavy into the brushes. I am sure they will have the patch out when the 30 free trial period is over.

You will be fine with photostop CS4 for editing. Just make sure you have the RAW plug ins for you camera. But if you use Iphoto for photo management, apple just put up the lasted raw plug in on there website for newer cameras yesterday.
