Derrys much photographed peace bridge, taken on the Scott Kelby Photowalk, difficult bridge to photograph and I think this is the best shot that can be got without being higher up so you can see the curve. Tried processing this with a little less saturation on the colours that I normally would and I think the result looks a little more natural. Also the first time I have included people on the bridge, would have liked still water with reflection but we don;t always get what we want.

One of the better versions of HDR but I did know it was HDR as soon as I saw it. However, most none photographers are going to think this is superb, and it is, indeed, well done. Did conditions dictate HDR?

I like this at lot, especially the church/pillers area which works so well. I think you also have a good square image by cropping some of the right hand side. i would be tempted to tone down the bright blue door in the top right.

Very nice. When you mention bracketed HDR, you were obviously selective in the areas you used to have the people walking in focus, well done. I would suggest to de saturate a little, perhaps only blues as they are a touch too intense on my monitor.

Good composition and to me this looks like HDR but could it be the effect that another member produces regularly using paint shop pro?

I do wonder with external shots why HDR is necessary there generally is not the vast range of lighting that necessitates such treatment. It would be interesting to know more about this image.

Your right Frank, this was a HDR, I often shoot 3 bracketed shots but don;t always use them, but like to have the option when processing if I think there might be something worth doing later. I find that quite often outdoors I do require HDR especially when there is a bright sky and a darker subject in the foreground, its often something I hear photographers come up against shooting on a bright day. Personally I like the HDR effect, I quite like the drama it helps create in the sky and I agree the key is to not over do it, something I used to do at the start like everyone else but something I think I'm managing much better now.
