Default Burra (Australia) countryside sunrise HDR

Hi friends

Recently my church had a weekend away, about 1.5 hours north of where I live / the church. It is an 'old' mining village / area.

On the Saturday morning I got up early and went out of the village - and took a number of photos before, during and after the sunrise.

Here is one of my HDRs that I was quite happy with (gotta be thankful for a good sturdy Manfrotto tripod!) The only thing I was a bit 'sad' about was the sun flare.

Taken with Canon 7D and 15-85mm lens. 3 exposures.

Your comments welcome!

Paul

Simon said it all for me. I tried the flare to see how easy it would be. No problem.

Thanks guys, but in this case very little cloning. I selected the circular flare and used Selective Color in Photoshop to try to bring out the colors in the red ball.

G'day Paul

Coming back to your image which I find to be a striking & beautiful image ... [as lovely as Bynx'x efforts were]
tell us more about your HDR-ing ... in camera blending or not, if not what s/ware etc etc etc

Regards, Phil

Simon, Bynx, Musket & Phil...

Many thanks for your kind comments. Genuinely appreciated!

I'm glad the photo was viewed and enjoyed. 'Twas a tremendous morning in a beautiful countryside location I'd not been to before.

And of course, thank you Bynx for as always, your masterful and helpful post processing. I'll have to apply that to the full size version.

Phil about the HDR-ing, I took 3 exposures (one and two-thirds EV difference from each other) on my tripod - and blended with Photomatix Pro.

Paul

Default Morning photo #2

Well, seeing as that photo was appreciated... here is another of that same morning....

I particularly liked the way I managed to catch the sun's beaming rays on this one.
