i am going back and forth on this one. sometimes i really like the effect, sometimes not. idk.

not really seen tonemapping/hdr used much on this type of image, so it is unique. but it almost obscures some of the details that i think may be interesting.

would u mind putting up a non-mapped and/or black and white version of this pic so we can make a comparison?

I'm a novice, but I kind of understand what you are talking about. I would like to see a B&W version also.

Nonetheless, it's a gorgeous shot! I can feel great things from the photo.

ok, after seeing what you were working with, i am very impressed.

you did a great clone-job to remove the photographer from the bench. and the details as cloning back in the shadows are pretty impressive.

thanks for sharing what you started with. it makes me appreciate the original much more. nice job.

That's funny. It's nice to see her face again. The last time I saw her was when you guys got married I guess. Glad to know she is doing well.

Your first shot is great. I dont know what Hards80 is talking about losing detail because of your pp. It did in fact enhance them. Your shot is another one for the books. Id give it 2 thumbs up. What you have done here is inspire me to go back through my pics and give it another go with more of a twist to what you have done here. Thanks.

lolz. i misinterpreted it as meaning that was the original shot you worked from.... glad i could provide some amusement for you all though.... =)

bynx- i don't think i phrased it correctly when i said lost detail. and keep in mind i had not seen what the original scene looked like. without seeing that, i was just wondering if there were some interesting shadows or other such thing that may have been interesting in a normal mono-conversion or whatever. after seeing the scene, i totally agree that the edited shot and the converted edited image bring out more detail.

i will try to be more clear in the future, i wash over some things as i am trying to get through all the "new posts"

No problem Hards80. Im such a lover of HDR I think of it as the new great toy and not just a fad of the age.
