Very Cool !! Nice color on the tractors. If the Halos r removed I think this will be a "Rockstar HDR" Mind sharing how many shots u bracketed ?

thanks for the response, mainak.

I used 3 shots, then photomatix, then back into Lr for a bit of rework

Im not hdr pro so Im not really sure how to go about removing the halos. If you could give me a hint, that would be great.

hdr for me is just, fun. Hence, Im never too worried about halos, but Id like to learn how to avoid or remove them.

As for "Rockstar HDR", LOL , I dont know about that but I like it and know it will not be to everyones taste. Ive been working with a new camera, just trying out all the different modes, settings and buttons.

Thanks for lookin!

I used Photoshop Elements 10 and duplicated the picture and changed the mode to screen which lightened it. I used the color picker and selected the bright blue around the trees. I used the magic wand and selected all of the sky and created an empty layer above that and filled it with the paint bucket. I increased the saturation some after merging all of the layers. I hope that you approve.

Yes, go ahead

thanks for your help, I dont have photoshop elements 10, so Ill have to try it another way.

I appreciate your input, sds. Even with the halos, I like the colour better in my file, as I specifically tried to accentuate the orange/reds.

Thanks for lookin!

@@ sds I appreciate and admire the steps you have mentioned. The result has been great.However like the owner of the pics I like the color in the original file. So what we can do is put gordymohr's image & your image and mask it. We can then remove the unwanted section and merge it. Then we can get rid of the halos and also get a cool color.

Thanks for taing up the trouble and explaining. I will implement this in my workflow!!
