Default Shire Horse HDR...

another HDR shot using 3 exposures. just before a very moody storm blew over us and the rain let us have the good news! happy with this shot as i didnt apply too much other than aligning the images and a bit of tone mapping.

let me know your thoughts

regards,
john

not sure why the grass always does this with hdr. its hard to tone to grass down without feeling the need to tone the sky down too. the sky is the best part when its all moody like this lol

Good job dear John, but is always difficult to balance the colors in HDR shot.

so, how did you do it?

Did you lower saturation and luminance in the green?

a bit of both really gordy. i used the selection tool and hilighted the grass, then worked it manually in the end. i think the result is definately better than the first attempt. what do you think?
