Default Pano Test - adjustments

After reading feedback on the first thread I went back and did some adjustments in contrast and curves to both images. Again the first is normal, second in camera HDR.

The second image has a brighter look with better detail in the clouds and reflections but the forested areas seem to have lost some contrast. Overall I prefer the second image.

I agree - no. 2 for me, too. Ira, if you turn up the brightness on your monitor, the contrast in no two's trees increases.

On my monitor there is also a purplish overtone to no 1 - strongest in the water - that I don't care for.

Nice Pano Ed,
I agree with Ira, on this one, the second one wins my nod of approval.

More vivid and brighter colours in #2 makes it more appealing to me as with other posters. I suppose it would be a joy to wander in this image in full size!

Ed - great job on the pano work and on the PP. I will agree with #2 as the better of these two, but both are great.
