Looks like you're back in action, and in grand f'n action! This is sweeeeeet! Lots of balance and imbalance all at the same time (if that makes sense). Love it.

Kevin, I agree on the balance/imbalance thing. It's what I mentioned before about "tension." It's a peaceful scene, but there is a tension because of the imbalance that isn't imbalanced.

Kevin and Austin For some strange reason I understand what your saying :)

Hello Ken,

the wood left is HDR colored and to dark on the right side in comparison - the view is marvellous, especially rwith the sun on the top of the mountain

You know what ~ skip the critique. I meant what I said to begin with; sweeeeeet ! I wouldn't change a thing. Nice work.

Kevin What? Are you afraid of divulging some trade secrets? :) I was looking forward to your critique. Thanks for the comments nonetheless.

Kevin Childress on October 22, 2011

hahahaha ! No, Ken, I really don't have any trade secrets where HDR blending is concerned. But as the forum thread hinted to, this is a good one for exposure stacking rather than full-on blending. I've been doing quite a lot of that lately - even on several of my recent mill photos. I'm thinking its about time I start researching other software to do the HDR blending.

Kenneth Kruse on October 22, 2011

Yes I have only recently become aware of exposure stacking and am anxious to learn how to properly do it. If you know of any online tutorials that especially warrant a visit please let me know. Remember I also use Paintshop Photo Pro X3.
