Just tried Artizen HDR trial software. Intersting. Then thought, why not get a little more agressive in PSE to replicate effects and surprised myself. Still a lot to learn with both lots of software. Attached photo taken late afternoon over the Canning River with K20D, Bigma @83mm FL, ISO 100, F9.5 and 1/250sec. Original was bland. PSE processed almost interesting.

I have not played with hdr yet myself and I also have a lot to learn doing photo editing (I am using PSP X2). Hopefully you don't mind, but I took a stab at boosting the contrast using curves. Any photo fine tuning is highly subjective, but to my eye my only suggestion would be a bit more contrast.

Hi Tim

Yeh, that looks better being brighter, but some of clouds blown out. I did lots of versions and as you say its subjective. Optimal is probably somewhere in between or using techniques to preserve a bit more detail in clouds and have the lower part of the image brighter as you have done.

thanks
