Thank you dear mate : ) I simply wouldn't wish anyone with a good camera risk being run over in the search of a better point of view

Both talented people used some post production skills to improve on your out of the camera image. Once on a rare occasion a perfect picture comes from the camera not needing any fiddling. For the most part some pp is necessary.

With all due respect, when I take a photograph, I want people to see what my eye sees. There are plenty of reasons to post process, and that would include those who wish to create an effect quite different from how the scene actually appears to the eye. But this discussion seems to lean toward processing for it's own sake, as opposed to processing to achieve similitude to the scene.

A night scene is not a day scene, nor is it something in between. It's not that I have a problem with the surreal - But rather the surreal is never what my eye see's.

Dave - I agree with you 100%, but I must say that I learnt a lot regarding post processing and HDR from this forum. Although I don't think I will implement it a lot.

I do like my pictures as is from the cameara and looking at a lot of photographs during the last month I must say that I have a lot to learn regarding composition..

I liked your photo it really gives the atmosphere of a US city at night.
