Early morning light on the Mon And Brecon Canal. I am not sure about this one.Its an attempt at HDR.I can never seem to process HDR images properly so I tend to leave them alone.Anyway I did this one in CS2 and any advice gratefully accepted.
I don't know anything about HDR, however, I do know that I love this image - it looks wonderful!

Looks ok to me, Roly, fabulous reflections.
LOvely detailed image , colours look great as does the curve into that reflection
Strong composition with the curve, pity there wasn't a barge coming around the bend.
You processed a fair range of tones so just keep at it.
Lovely image, has great atmosphere.
I love this image
the light is quite magical,
it is delightful
I don't know anything about HDR either...but this is a lovely image - it's got a real fairytale feel about it.
Beautiful image with superb lighting and wonderful colours
great reflection love it
Love the light in this super capture.
Lovely composition, great light and reflections.
Excellent shot Roly, the colours and reflections are great. Superb photo.
I like it very much.
Lovely light and beautiful reflections!
Wonderful light and colors. a great composition.
brilliant colours wonderful reflections beautiful capture
An idyllic canalside scene, love the reflections, composition and gentle autumnal mood
This is a wonderful image with the early morning sun coming through the trees and the stillness of the water and the beautiful reflection and great colour, excellent work. Gary
Love that golden light, the reflections and curve of the canal, and can only say I like it, knowing nothing about HDR.
wonderful light , colors, & reflections Roly, great HDR tone
This is one super image. The reflections in the still water, the light through the trees and the curve of the towpath all combine so well.
see thats just so right
Nice shot Roly good composition and reflection. Sorry I cant help with HDR, haven't ventured into that area nyself....yet!
Works for me Roly,beautiful shot!
Hi Roly! This is one amazing shot!!!! Beautiful light and colours!
Excellent roly ,love the composition and good light too
Beautiful shot, well processed !
stunning just stunning.. angie
A beauty, Roly; the light and reflections are superb.
beautifully you have done this, but as you have said it is an HDR image, then i must say that you can use this technology for high dynamic range images because our eye can see 50000:1 dynamic range but camera can capture 300:1 dynamic range resulting lost detail in both highlighted and shadow area. here in this case the dynamic range of the scene i presume is not very high and you can capture it without the HDR technology by properly setting the Ev +/- value.
although if you want to experiment with the HDR technology, first you have to capture at least 3 to 7 images of different exposures of the same scene using a tripod(a must), the settings of every such images should be the same except the shutter speed. you should take raw images if possible. then you should use photoshop.
as you have said it is an early morning picture, so i can say it hardly requires an hdr image processing. you have asked for any kind of help to this images, so i am giving you a link below for better understanding this technology.
although a vote to your work because there is no such lost detail in the highlighted as well as shadow area.
Hope it helps,
It's a lovely image no matter how you did it. Beautiful reflections too.........Sandy
A cracker. Lovely light and a cracking image.
Beautiful scene with some fantastic light ,Roly................Trev
Super shot. Like the reflections,
excellent capture roly,great reflections.ray
Wonderful light and reflection Roly.... a visit to the canal for me soon methinks !!
Looks good to me, great lighting and detail. wonderful image
Fabulous colours and light, great composition, and finally not forgetting those gorgeous reflections. Stunning image
In general I am not a fan of HDR images as I think people overuse the effect and I much prefer a "reality" shot! Having said that, it's the 2nd time today I have had to tell someone how much I love their image which used this!! This image is superb, so perhaps I do need to rethink my attitude!
This imo is a fine example of what is good of this much maligned process, your p/p Roly is quite superb, totally believable, and I suspect very much how you viewed this scene at the time of the capture, look forward to more such like images..
This is great atmospheric image Roly.
some lovely light here Roly nice hdr work
Perfection - this deserves an award. So many qualities - such clarity - use of soft light, wonderful lines into the shot, fantastic colour blends. Great work Roly Katie
Such a beautiful and serene image.
lovely shot with nice range of colours and tones, has a nice depth to it too, I am also going to try experimenting with HDR cant get the grasp of it yet myself
Looks fantastic to me.
The HDR work looks excellent to me, the image looks natural and not over worked. It's a cracking shot with lovely light and reflections.
Very nice work with this well-taken scene, Roly. Along with good colour, you've captured some lovely light & fine detail.
nice shot Roly well processed.
It does not look HDR and thats a complement to a nicely worked image. - gary
Lovely image Roly,nice work..................
One of your best! Love the lines and glowing colors! Added to my favorites!
