Walter,

The shots are just amazing. I've tried to get the same range of colors that i see in your photos, but i can never come close.

Could you give any pointers on how you make the edits in Photomatix Pro v4?

I saw you posted a reply to my photos last night, and with mine, at least to me, they don't have that 3D feeling i usually see in other's HDR photos.

Thanks

-Travis-

Travis, there is no one set adjustment that I use. It all depends on the composition of the shots as to what would look best. Often times I just go with the default selection at the bottom of the screen (Photomatix Pro v.4) and then make adjustments with sliders on the side bar. In addition, much of the "punch" that I achieve is in combination with Topaz...usually the Adjust 4 component...and sometimes with DeNoise. Just have to experiment on a shot by shot basis. -Walter

I love the contrast of the stone and woodwork on that house... The HDR makes
it look sort of Norman Rockwell (ish) magical...!

Very nice...!

Nice place! I sure would love to have that view in the first one. The pictures do a good job of capturing what's obviously a magical place.

Thanks, all, for your comments. Frank, no skiing although conditions were great. I grew up in the South, so didn't learn and its a bit too late now. The weather coming back was nerve-wracking, but the views were spectacular. I highly recommend the drive, especially in fall and winter.

Good morning Walter,

I kind of know how yu feel about starting late in the skiing thing. I started a little late myself, and although I managed to do pretty well, I was so sore, I hurt in places I never even knew I had!! I imagine there are plenty of things to do and see. Some fine dining, scenery, or just a nice fire and great conversation. Enjoy! Frank
