This is a really nice shot. Just for fun I convered to 32 bit and saved as tiff. Then took into Photomatix and played with the sliders. Dont know if you can see a difference but it does look different in Photoshop.

Yup, looks like you increased the saturation and exposure.

This is the second picture Ive seen you repost Chato that is really heavily saturated beyond belief. Its not my monitor so unless you are goofing around something is going on between your sending and the sites displaying.

I'm not spending enough time manipulating these images...

On the other hand, I believe I wanted to make a point - And that point in that there is no point in using even faux HDR on an image which already has the full dynamic range of the scene.

Im not sure if there is a cure for color blindness. But Id have yourself checked out. Maybe there is a pill or some sort of reflexology that is beneficial.
As for my interpretation of the original post, I see it as the most natural color. I have a complaint about the focus or soft look of it. The pic I sent was 800 x 543 pixels and 1.24M prior to being compressed to jpg. I believe this is within the site specs. So why does the post show up fuzzy compared to my original?

Colors change when viewed on the net. Since your "sharpness" was based on saturation, naturally the image appears soft. The last image I posted became red shifted, in this translation as well.

There is also a cure available for those who become addicted to HDR. It's a twelve step program, and it's a sister program to the Betty Ford Clinic.

Cheers, now all the edits look dark, so i'm assuming my monitor needs setting up again

I'll have another look when i'm at work to see if they're lighter on those screens,,
