The first time I saw your pics I was thinking, what is Walter talking about the HDR is great! I love it.

I actually thought you were doing this as a veiled mockery saying, this is how bad HDR can get and it still looks much better than anything you HDR-critics can accomplish .

I guess anything you lay your hands on is to me magic.

I enriched the sky a bit (about 20% in RAW converter) and I darkened the base a bit to make it more solid. Standard S in curves with a bit more on the dark side to make it darker.

I do not know what is tone mapping...

And with all due respect, I believe both Simple and I brought out more detail then the HDR version, and That was done based on a little JPEG from Walters middle exposure...

Nice work, too, Dave!

I didn't really look at the rest of the thread -- I don't have as much time now as I used to since I used to view pics at work. But with more stringent company policies now, I had to surf the web only on lunch break at the library or on weekends. .

We should get together. Perhaps you'd like a trip to Plum Beach! (And at the same time avoid being eaten by Chato)

Plum Beach looks like a sandy strip along the Brooklyn coastline (and therefore a good place to take pics?) according to google maps. Is it open to the public? Does the water there get warm enough for a swim in the summer?

Chato is simply saying that some scenes have a high dynamic range (HDR) and some don't ... in fact most I've seen here don't. Most scenes don't need HDR blending, particularly if the RAW is available. However anyone can apply HDR blending to anything they like, whether the scene needs it or not.

Where people don't have access to RAW's as with Bynx, HDR helps make up for the limitations of JPGs.
