superbly well done hdr. with an astounding amount of sharpness and clarity. I'm new to the whole idea of high dynmaic range editing on photographs. I've managed to try niks hdr effects on two of my photographs on my gallery. If you could please sir, just take a look at the two and give me your advice on what needs to be improved on them and little things that I missed, to make them better. I would really appreciate it. Like and a favorite for your photograph. : )

Photography is just another form art and ones perception plays a big part in it. What pleases one's eye may not please anothers and beauty does lay in the eye of the beholder.. I have found that my artwork is in constiant refinement. Images that I did several years ago be they HDR or not are different from the ones of today in both compositision, style and workflow... Technicially speaking I use a lot of different programs to assist in creating the images I do.. I use Photoshop CS5, Lightroom 2, Various Topaz products, Noiseware Professional, Photomatix 4.0 for HDR. And I'll tell you. HDR in Photomatix is a little different when done in Photoshop CS5.... When shooting some photographers shoot just 3 images some shoot up to 9 images. Some do double proccessing. an image fusion after the inital HDR to help keep the surreal colors from HDR toned down.... Learning to Mask in Photoshop appears to be a vital part of the workflow. ( Masking is one step I still need to learn well )

I guess what I'm trying to say is that your work is good and I can tell that it's changing as you learn. There is a couple of website blogs you might want to follow. I use them for inspiration, ideas and some technicial ways to do things in my workflow. Here they are... BRIAN MATIASH BLOG PACIFIC CREST STOCK MARC ADAMUS and the one site that started it all for me and he has a bunch of free tutorials also. STUCK IN CUSTOMS

Keep shooting and evloving your work.
