I visitedSears Kay Ruinsnorth east of Phoenixthe other week. While the ruins are a little disappointing (only a few stones and walls left), the desert overlook from there is really nice. I played with Paint Shop Pro afterwards, just to try something different. There are also a bunch of powerlines in the area, but it seemed way to much work to try to do something about them in post processing.

Wow are they from film without the crop factor? Or they are HDR thing? Amazing shots. I should have got Sepia instead of the more affordable Reala for my Zenitar 16mm. This is the effect I want to see as PSP does not have the HDR option.

All of them are HDRs taken w. The DL and the Pentax DA 12-24mm. The HDRs were made in Photomatix w. tone mapping. The Sepia toning, contrast, burn tool etc was all done on PSP.

Thank you. I converted them to B/W sepia in Paint Shop Pro 10. Also enhanced the contrast, and played with the Burn tool. Resized, cropped and Unsharp mask.

As usual, your pictures are outstanding. The sepia really works with these scenes, and the HDR is so seamless. I've run out of superlatives for your shots.
