Two lovely shots and I really like the 2nd, definitely a wall hanger!

I would be worried about shooting the sun with HDR as I'm guessing for the correctly exposed/over exposed pier you are really going to have a lot of sun hitting the sensor. Not sure if I would be right to be concerned and would value anyone's thoughts.

The more great shots I see from HDR the more I want to give it a propper try. I've got the trial of photomatrix but as yet not managed to get a natural result.

gorgeous job on these. they look very natural and artifact free. stunning colors.

i prefer the angle of shot #2 the best, and this is a real winner, nicely done!

Thanks so much guys. I had to do some additional adjustments in Photoshop to get a more natural result. Glad you like them.

Default Great pictures!

Walter!

It really pleases me to see you embracing HDR the way you do and getting such good results. It's such a fine tool really to get that little extra out of an otherwise already good enough picture in itself, like the two you posted here. The HDR makes them sparcle!


Not only does its deepen the colors's glow, but giving such texture to things - just look at the ocean-floor (or whatever you call it) with all the details in the sand / silt / mud or whatever it is, in the foreground, .

They are very good, both of them.

Very good catch, Walter C!
