Nicely captured and processed Paul. Can almost hear the boom of the rushing water.

How fashions change Paul, I looked back at the Tavy images and saw what I had written too. The River runs through it 11 probably the one I liked best in retrospect too. Tavy 111 now looks so green.
I think this new processing is much more realistic, possibly bright in the yellows by the tree. The water is close to cotton wool in the centre, but still OK possibly because of the brown tinge. All in all a better processing and a more modern approach, well done. I'm always a fan of your processing and results. especially the most natural looking. Hope this makes sense to you? It's supposed to be positive.

Lovely shot Paul and looked back at the previous image and I do agree that this looks much better and more natural

Haven't checked back either so I'll take your word for it too, especially as I used to use HDR all the time and seem to have gone off using it now for the very same reason. Still think it has it's place, but I'm trying to be more selective in my use of it now.

As "revisisting" fan of HDR I agree you can go over the top with the processing resulting in "overcooked" images . I'm now re-processing a lot of my shots using a quietened down version of HDR and can honestly say that if mine are half as good as this one I'll be well chuffed Wink

Superb shot with loads of detail and colour !!

Very strong composition Paul. Personally I am not a fan of HDR in landscapes (or at least where you can tell that HDR has been used) so this was definitely worth a re-visit. Excellent job.

It is an amazing difference isn't it. This is a very natural look, and it's interesting to see how styles alter over the years too. This is in hindsight, a much better shot, although when you took the others, I was very impressed with their quality!!! Hope that makes sense!

Great shot Paul. I really like the muddy look to the water too as it adds a sense of power.
