    Jordan, hope you don't mind I tried to edit your image. I tried to darken the bricks and sharpened it.

    Very Nice!!.

    I tried to use Photmatix. It seems to give me the effect I want easier but it keeps locking up my laptop. I don't think it is a ram problem since PS works flawlessly and that is a larger program.

    I will try on my desktop in a little while.

    Good idea in regards to the telephone pole.

    Thank you

    sparkie, is your monitor calibrated? What are you using to view your images on?

    Reason I ask is, those images look much worse than the original posted by JPhotoz. I think those are way over-sharpened and I'm seeing a squiggly dark line across the side of the bridge. Get a little trigger happy with the burn tool did we?

    Don't take this the wrong way, I just don't sugar coat things

    The 2nd image in this thread was the one with the best processing. The one after that was over-saturated. One immediate thing I can think of to increase the quality of the shot would be to use a smaller aperture to increase the depth of field.

    I think the original #1 HDR is the best! Nice crop and good composition and overall looks very natural. The only thing I would do with it would be mess with the curves and maybe increase the saturation.

    How about Something different -Sunset HDR

    I tried something different tonight.

    What do you think?



    I couldn't get rid of the lines at the top of the distant trees.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
