I shot this for the HDR Challenge a little while back and got some great feedback and a 6th place finish, I know some people don't like the Tone Mapping on HDR images but at the end of the day its still art and each to his own I guess...

Im still not 100% on this HDR technique and do still prefer traditional photography but it does get peoples interest and I kinda enjoy doing it - I guess it allows me to use techniques of oversaturating and get away with it easier...

Thanks for your time looking.

Not sure what HDR isor how to achive it, but I like the look of it and I liked 1, 4 and 6 in order.

I like your shots.

I love HDR, and not just subtle HDR, I like big-time nasty HDR as well! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion about HDR, and my opinion is that if you don't like it you can kiss my big, white, hairy arse, because I'm going to keep on doing it. :-P

LOL. Just don't tone map your ass ok? :P

Palendrone, those are great. Nice detail filled scenery to work with.

Thanks folks - gotta have something to keep me busy and outta mischief...

Good that a challenge has inspired me to go out and do more similar images.

They look great....looking forward to seeing more.

I notice that all the images have a very distinct light line across the approximate middle of each. Is that some sort of watermark - or something else?

Yeah your dang right - just decided to start doing it as my images have always been marked in the bottom right hand corner with my name but can still be easily ripped off by cropping the right hand edge off, probably change my mind soon if it distracts from the image though.

Great pics.
I remember going to the Anne Hathaway Cottage when I was 8. It was in summer and the garden was full of flowers - perhaps you can return when the garden is a riot of colour and see how that turns out in HDR.

I certainly hope this is not compulsory ... this might just be the thing that makes a bevy of people convert... hehehehehe. :O)

Great pictures... I so do love the colors, and the houses are just the best.

That is the plan but in summer the tourism will be dificult to shoot around...

heres a few from last year when I went as a tourist that I sell on Istockphoto, another one that is very similar is actually one of my best selling stock image to date.
