Default Peer review...

...er, PIER review? Taken this evening. A 3-shot HDR processed in Photomatix Pro and tweeked a bit in CS5 and Topaz Adjust. A bit extreme, but I like it. C&C welcome

Here is the middle shot for comparison. As you can tell, I also used the Lens Adjustment feature in Photoshop to straighten things a bit.

I like the idea but somewhere it's losing a lot of detail. I got the version below from the middle exposure and there is a lot more detail available at the top of the legs. It looks blown out on the legs in the Photomatix version like it's using the wrong exposure in places.

Martin, I think your comment probably has more to do with my adjustments in Topaz and how I wanted to present the photo. Here's another version where I'm trying for a somewhat "clean" look, but providing detail on the underside of the pier itself.

I like the first one. Its a bit overdone, but it gives it an artsy feeling. the only thing is the land going down hill in the background is a little distracting to me.
