Nice shot, but I see none of the constituents that one normally associates with HDR. I would have titled this one "Macaws".

I think this is a very well made HDR, TB!

- In my humble (and very absent) opinion, a HDR-picture with strong tell-tales of HDR-process is NOT a good HDR. If you are in doubt as to whether it really is a HDR (no tell-tales, non of the sometimes "grusome" artifacts) - then it is a good one - like the above with the two parrots.

Well done, Barbarian! - I like it!

Curious about my photography?
You may look up my small portfolio on the Norwegian photo-forum: http://walter_s.foto.no/ - click - "LATEST" on left bottom of page.
You may then click any thumbnail to view the picture and click again on the displayed picture for an unobstructed full screen view. Enjoy!

+1.

Why is it we only attend to actor's technique when it's bad acting? Or notice brush strokes only on paintings that don't engage us? Or hear gimmicks in popular music on the songs we don't like? Technique is visible in all art forms. But when it's the first thing one notices about a new piece, that's a fail. I'll never understand why it's considered a win in a subculture of HDR users.

Uh, yeah, macaws. Calling macaws "parrots" is like calling a grizzly bear, a bear. Correct, but imprecise. Thanks for all the kind comments. I sometimes like more extreme HDRs, but I like them better when other people do them. I'm not so good at it.
