Hard to rank these two retaining their own virtues! So, you did a good thing posting both

Well done once again!

TD,

I'd like to also say (as the others have said) really wonderful photo. Great angle, composition, colour and exposure! You've nailed it, ALSO with the post processing. As David French said in his post, it has the special processed look that's actually very appropriate in this case! Well done!

Is the photomatix plugin a free download? Could you share more details about it?

Cheers

Paul

Thanks Paul, here is the link to the photomatix website,there is a free trial for the plugin and also the tone mapping plugin.

Here is a link to a great tutorial, you can also download it as a pdf.

to finish off the PP ,I applied a dodging and burning layer to bring out cloud detail

Hello TD, i really love your composition for these shots:-), I have just read your last post and you talk about tonal mapping!!, well that was just what i had done to your pic (cheeky i know)!!, i had seen a similar pic in a photo magazine and they had graduate tonal mapped it, so i thought i'd give it a go.What do ya think?,IMO i think it turns a stunning colour pic into a B&W stunner the tone mixing is endless and any one of them seems to suit your shot!!, Regards Graham

Hi TD!

Thanks for the helpful links, I'll definitely check them out sometime soon!

Appreciate your kindness!


PS (edit)... how does the Sigma lens serve you on the Nikon D200? I might get the same lens sometime in the future for my Canon... just depends! It seems like a great ultra wide angle....!

Paul
