There's more clarity in the middle shot, but the HDR has a striking impressionist feel to it that really draws my eye.

I like this. There's some noise in the sky, but in this image, it really doesn't detract from the feeling it gives me.

The Barbarian,

Thanks for checking it out and your kind words. I am glad to hear from you that it conveyed the feeling I was hoping for. It's a great image as a desktop background. What I like especially which will make sense when you see the below is that you can't see the houses on the other side of the shore.

Here's a shot of the same lake this morning. Again 5 shot HDR but different settings.

The first shot is just too empty looking to be kept with the same cropping. Its more of a panorama with the sky and water area cropped to emphasize the part in the middle. The other shots have some color and reason for the full crop size. Other than that they look good.

Bynx - thanks for checking it out and I am glad they look good to you.

here is the center shot from the P9215223_hdr_1 (third pic/thirdpost) In both cases I have used the HDR to pull out more color and topped it off with a blue sky enhance pre-set in post HDR processing to counteract the grey-ness of the original scene captured in the center frame of the bracket.

I see them more as an abstract watercolor.
