These two dogs have clearly learnt the benefits of teamwork as neither could have managed it on their own.

Because there was a large contrast and brightness variation I decided to use the Exposure Blending function of Photomatix 3.

I like this function as it seems to give a more natural result than HDR and also reduces noise in the final image

I love this, Brian. You got the whole shadow in too ..! It is bright - I haven't any experience of Photomatix so can't make any intelligent comment about it Wink - but for me the brightness really works well. It reinforces the mood and kind of underlines the lightness and fun in this pic.

Good luck with the comp! Smile

Thanks for the added comments Jeff and Suzi.

It got a 10 Suzi and helped me win the print league again this year Smile

Have a look at Photomatix sometime you have a moment Suzi - I'm really getting more impressed with its capabilities the more I use it and its only "Pennies"
