I don't think so. I looked in the mirror and saw this...

squirl033 and spy, I admire your pp in your works so coming from you the compliments are pretty hefty.

After reading your comment, I thought the same, too. It's an unnecessary reminder for the victims' families whenever they pass by that road.

I like contrast. When I tried DPHDR the first time, I liked its "ultra-contrast" best. But now I'm learning I can better control contrast (and hopefully achieve better-looking results) of an image using PSE.

The only problem I am finding out with increasing contrast is it also adds pixellation just like when sharpening.

I think the high contrast especially the windows darkened to total blackness where you can't see inside makes the house scary.

#5) Here's one of the "middle" HDR exposures. Not too scary-looking I think when there's a little bit of light to see through the windows.

I don't remember the ruins on the left being like that when we moved. I remember the barn was still standing although in very dilapidated condition. I guess it's a reminder that if you enter such abandoned structures at the wrong time, the danger of the roof caving in on you is very real.

#6) Ruins.

I learned another technique last night to make a place even spookier -- how to create "rain"! Initially I downloaded ULead's free "Particles" plug-in (very cool -- I tried it at work), but last night's install took a long time so I googled some more and found this tutorial -- no plugins needed, just PSE:

#7) Rain.


C&C welcome -- except for #4 that is...

Great pp! Now you need a nice lightning on the background and you're done!

I added two more. I can't get enough of the lightning I want to put one on all my landscapes...

#9) Harriman Road that leads to the Goshen farm house.


#10) Pond at the back of the house.
