I like 2/3 rds of this one you'll guess which no doubt, the sky for me looks painted in, hdr is a mystery to me how everybody sees what they want to.

The bit I like is full of huge detailand colour.

All the very best Chris,

I see what Dougie means. I have never been able to get an image with a lot of colour to turn out well in PhotoMatix, though this looks better than my efforts. (And you REALLY don't want to see mine!) The rock looks excellent and the right part of the sky looks natural.

Nice one Chris, i can understand using HDR on this one since a filter would have darkened the castle, the sky is a bit mish mash but the overall detail is amazing.
