cahills point sunset 2f.jpg

My biggest task (in learning to use Photomatix HDR merging) is how to get a natural looking rendition.
The last image was very close to what I remember seeing at the time and I am pleased you liked it.
I AM sometimes attracted to the "painterly" preset, however. Even though it isn't strictly realistic.
I couldn't resist posting THIS version. Gilding the lily, it may be, but it's fun, ain't it? :o)

So moody David. Love the light catching the sky... a successful HDR merge I think. V

Much more dramatic than the previous version. Excellent processing work, David. V

All wonderful shots - but is that called 'double trouble?'

I do like this version. And I wasn't there so maybe this is just how it was.
Yes what fun.
