Default On the sunny side of things.

Oh hi !
Long time no see, friends !

I recently extended my arsenal of glass with the Tokina 12-24 f/4 and I wanted to test out its capabilities with some HDR, which I havent captured in a LOONG time.

Tell me what you think !

5 exposures through Photomatix 4 and Lightroom adjustments.

I like this but feel a little less yellow or a little more cyan to make the grass a little less bright.

It may help to desaturate a little bit.

Here it is with just an adjustment in Color Balance. Down with yellow and up with blue. I think it looks more natural. Not necessarily looks better.

I lost the sunshine on the grass in the last one. This one has just the Vibrance dropped a bit. (A moderation of desaturation).

Thanks for your inputs, although I gotta say, yours look too desaturated for my taste? it even looks unnatural... my monitor must be way off or something since everybody seems to think its overly saturated....and its a HDR :S

Mugmar, I didnt do anything in post-production for that starburst effect, it comes with the lens actually. Because of it's nine-bladed diaphragm or something :P
