    Thanks Geoff. I can imagine it is beyond your personal taste, the post processing I did on this one was really extreme.

    In the image below you can see two versions, the left is the original, the right is how I would post process it normally.

    Excellent job on your post production. I believe that road is the finest looking one Ive ever seen. Very artistic brickwork using lovely colored bricks and pattern brought out by the rainfall.

    Very, very nice Dennis. Your post really works well for this shot. I like it the best of the 3, although it would be a little too heavy for most shots IMO. Great composition and use of lines. Only little suggestion would be to clone out the 2 black grates in the street just so you get the really neat texture and pattern uninterrupted.

    Guessing that was shot with the Sigma 10-20? I've got the Canon efs10-22 and I love it. It's a great focal range for landscapes.

    Thanks Bynx and Dennis.

    This was indeed shot with the 10-20, love that lens. The wide angle is really fun to use, allowing for quite dramatic angles.

    I'll give it a try cloning the grates away.

    Here's another shot of the same holiday, this one shot in Inverness. It is a three shot HDR.

    That is one sweet photo Prospero. I like the stone brickwork of the buildings, the brightness of the green grass and the water surface going from white to the orange shade reflecting the bridge wall. Definately a unique style you have there. Now please, more.

    Awesome photo Prospero. As always the HDR is fantastic. Just a quick question though...do you use a tripod when you shoot a series for HDR? Or do you use that program in your tutorial to align the images?

    Thanks Bynx and Drew.
    I do not use a tripod for my HDRs. I am too lazy to cary one around . This one was also alligned with the program in the tutorial.

    Hah yes they can be a pain. But you don't seem to need one.

    Btw this is the second thread in a row I opened that you'd answered one of my questions haha.

    This is the courthouse at Colonial Williamsburg. I absolutely love brick buildings. And for the record I actually like the angles in the picture while I'm sure some of you won't. :P

    Nice picture, Drew. The angle works fine here.

    I usually like angles in pictures too (as long as it is obvious it's been done on purpose). Makes the composition a bit more special. It's not something that must be overdone, but every now and then it can give a bit of variation.


    And here's another HDR. Made of three RAW files inside a church in Perth (Scotland):
