This is a revised HDR and Tone Mapped photo of a previously posted image.

The comments higlighted interesting thoughts on HDR etc and in particular suggested improvements i.e. halo, saturation and less manipulation. This time I picked the best image out of the 3, HDR'd just that one and Tone Mapped it in Photomatix.

Have a look at the previous image ( http://www.ephotozine.com/photo/972014 )and give me your thoughts please.

Thanks

Like the low viewpoint and rusty detail, Mikbee should enjoy this one!

Much more natural looking. Subtle is the way to go in HDR.

Hi Gary,

Totally agree with Rob. This is how HDR should be used for a natural and enhanced look. For me this is a 1000% improvement - give or take a precentage point Wink I really respect that you're keeping it real mate.

Cheers!

Between the two, I like this one better, not as saturated. I have yet to try an HDR image, this looks good though...

Think I like this one better - more natural, but still very dramatic because of the angle (and lens?)
