An image from my last weekend away.
This is Lustybeg Island in Co. Fermanagh. I combined 3 images together and processed them in photomatix. I would be interested in your views as I am still on a learning curve with this programme.
Many thanks to all who voted and left comments on my last upload "Lest we forget". All were very much appreciated
Looks stunning Jim, Would hang on my wall
Very good processing Jim, excellent comp with stunning colours. well worked image, very nie capture.
I don't honestly know on this sort of thing Jim, I really don't! looks a little unreal to me but! then again it is quite appealing, It really depends if you feel you achieved what you had hoped for! after all it's your photo, I can't help wondering if I might have like the original a bit more, still a good photo!; it's all a matter of taste at the end of the day, I like it would like to see the original as yours are very good photo's, regards Leon.
a nice try i am sure you will get there
Instantly I thought a touch of HDR and very tastefully done IMO great work
Whatever you did here works for me ! What a stunning photo you have produced
It's all down to taste on some subjects it works and on others not. I think you have got a typical HDR effect and its worked rather well but I prefer my HDR a little more subtle but nice work all the same
Myself I like v2 better but what do you like is more important than what anyone else says,at the end of the day its your photo .
A cracking shot. Whatever work you did on it doesn't matter 'cos I love it.
Its a beautiful image indeed.
Regards - SANJEEV -
V2. Jim is what I expect from you but! I might if you persevere find I like the other style better, I do like this photo! carry on and perhaps you could put both in future giving a choice, Best regards Leon. Thank you cheers Jim.
like v2 great photo. christine
v1 for me today jim love the light and tones a real cracker nice one
Two fantastic and great captures,Jim.V1 is my favorite,
Super scene Jim, much prefer V2,
v1 definitely has impact. v2 is a beautifully composed image. Both have their merits and I would give a vote to either.
Luv both, Jim, but i prefer v2, both super composition, but so very different, good creative thinking.
I like strong colours Jim,
but perhaps V1 is a bit strong for me.
Prefer V2 !!
Cracking composition, Jim. Like the HDR version best, but maybe just toned down a little.
I like both with a slight preference for V2. Great work with photomatix on V1.
OK, have to confess straight off I rarely like HDR images. Too many of them do funny things to my eyesight! Much prefer V2 between the images posted here. Is it the original? However, having said all that, well done on trying a new challenge and I look forward to being proved wrong very soon when you totally master this process!
Beautiful scene, great lighting, superb images. Don
Missed U for 3 days , will catch up . Both are beautiful in their respect.
I don't know about you still learning but i think its a beauty Jim, well done, Peter..
The thing with HDR is to make it look so natural you wouldn't know it was HDR.
I do like V2 your original but it does need that added punch from Highlights and Shadows,
which is what HDR is all about.
I used to have Photomatix on my old computer which was a good programme for HDR
but efforts in Photoshop haven't been too good so far. It does take very subtle handling.
For me the saturation is a little bit overdone but I'm no expert on the subject Jim
but you have brought out more detail in sky.
Both images are grate Jim,very well composed, and grate colours. Well done.
Two stunning captures. But you have given me a problem Jim, I love v1 even after everything every else has said. I love the vibrancy of the colours, it just hits thar spot, but I also like v2, so they shall have to share the vote for now ... Carol
I prefer v2 but I think I would have pushed it a bit more---but not as far as v1---
Keep in mind that this is not an area that I have done much work--- however I am interested to see what can be done as I am working towards some larger images!
Grand work .
I like both images Jim, V1 for the dramatic impact and the vibrancy of the colours, just the sort of image that should be hanging on the wall of an ultra modern building V2 I like the subtle colours much more restful , great composition,
Very nice image Jim well captured.
it is a beautiful view... my preference would be somewhere halfway in between the two.. 1 is a bit too much, 2 could do with a bit more contrast. It is always good to experiment, that is the best way to learn.
stunning photograph would make a lovely painting or greetings card
I like the comp. Photomatix is a great programme, but it takes a bit of getting used to and I'm sure you'll find settings you like when you've done a bit of experimenting. The colours, etc, are all a matter of personal choice, but one thing I would do, if I were you, is to bring back a sky from a single image to get rid of the cloud stutter. Send me a pm if you want me to explain.
cracking image sir
A cracking shot - Photomatix what setting did u use trying to learn it myself
