Padley Colours

By MarkT  
This was taken about three weeks ago at you guessed it Padley Gorge in the Peak District. I didnít take many shots because I had my 3 year old daughter with me and I had to hold her hand 95% of the time. I took my little compact camera for her to take shots and she loved just clicking away Ė startíem young Wink She loved it, which is great because I have to look after her most weekends, which means I canít get out with the camera Sad So when itís not too cold for her Iíll be back up there soon Smile

I've added an image of Holly in the Mod section.

4 images HDR/Tone mapped.

Cheers for looking.

Nicely done mate, great comp to begin with but the process has maximised all that lush detail.

Thanks for the mod Nicholas, I prefer mine because my comp leads you from the fg diagonally left then right up the valley which you can't see in your version. Thanks anyway Smile

Thanks Sandra - she is Smile

Thanks for the comments/clicks folks.

Nice comp Mark. This HDR stuff does look good when done sympathetically, and this is a fine example.
Great colour & detail in the FG leaves.

Nice one mate. Not sure how I missed clicking, saw it and liked it when it was posted!!!! Well deserved HC.... Normally I would say photography and three year olds don't go together, but you managed brilliantly....
