Trying something new, please be gentle.
Took a few exposures for this one 0EV + and - 2EV and created a HDR image, I think it looks very surreal, I haven't added the sky or changed the crop only, a boost in colour and a slight sharpen for the web,
One of the things I like about this technique is the detail is visible from front to back in the shot.
Thanks for looking,
Jason

I called it the walk home cos through wrong directions it took 4 hours to get here and 10 mins to get back to the car, LOL
