In the first place I'm glad to hear you're recovering from thatcomputer virus, my friend!! Oh, I know how they can benasty at times: )

As foryourphoto above, it speaks for itself...Compositionwise, very tasteful as one can expect of you! Regarding the technique, you've attainedanatural looking imageyet witha quitedramatic feellike that of a HDR! It is of course possible weldingsome layers at PS which might require some further labour though. Well, whatever you did there just keepup with it

Dramatic photo, if you use your imagination I'm sure you can see a wolves head in the clouds, top right hand corner. Well done.

Thanks for the comments Bahadir, re: the computer virus, to be quite honest i find it very difficult to understand the motivation behind those individuals who create viruses....very sad.

With regards post processing, whilst I sometimes utilise the "welding" technique, sometime the interface between the two seperate layers can be obvious and very laborious, especially when halos raise their ugly head!

The shot below utilised luminosity masks, eight in total, to make very subtle changes to the tonality of the image. It works very well but is very time consuming. I intend to write a few actions to speed up the process!

@MVASteve I can see the wolf! well spotted!
