Some of us have expressed our liking of #2 and #3. Here is a BEFORE and AFTER shot of each. Any preference??? It is hard getting the colour right, for some reason, and I realize there is some noise... but its all educational and HAVING FUN for me.


#2 BEFORE



#2 AFTER (2 different attempts)








#3 BEFORE



#3 AFTER

Great series,

the first picture is in comparison with your a bit earlier posted picture of boats and lake a lot better. especially because the boats are now more a subject instead of a distraction.

I think it's my fav.

then the differrent versions end up with the last version being my fav.

Cheers

Ronny

I prefer the darker shots as it brings out the sky better, but you are getting some halo effects around the tree's where they meet the sky. It's not bad, but a minor distraction.

My fav was #2 with its moody feel. And with the reduxs, I like the last in the set. The more saturated colours really help to give impact and definition to me.

Ned the K7 has a muted version you can try in camera (just set it up and the camera will do it for you) and I'm sure that CS4 & 5 both have some HDR tricks - Harriet will know for sure. I know Aperture 3 has it so PS must too.

Such lovely subtle tones and colors - some great landscapes! I think I like the 2nd "after" of #2 - but I always like rich colors better...

CS4's HDR is very lame, I understand CS5 is better but I haven't found a reason yet for upgrading (and I needed to make sure my other half got his iPad, which he did). I use Photomatix but there are other good software programs out there. Some people prefer one over the another because they "get" that particular program better, like I do with Photomatix. Buying one of the better HDR software programs is much cheaper than upgrading to the full version of Photoshop, too!

Thanks EVERYONE for your comments and suggestions! I am currently in western Finland, deep in the woods, far from civilization... Hope to get some good photos while I am here. All the best. Ned
