This is a false HDR, made from one JPEG photo. I had tried for a real HDR, but I don't know what I was doing - the shift distance between those exposures would have worked better in 3D! I did the best I could with Dynamic Photo's pin warping and cropped off the worst, but it still looked horrible. I liked the tonemapping enough that I uploaded it to Panoramio, but now I decided to try it with one exposure. Dynamic Photo calls that FITYMI (Fake it 'till you make it!) but I think it works well enough and avoids the awful ghosting. What do you think?

I'm not one of the experts, but I like the effect you achieved here. Good, rich colour and nice contrast without the overly dramatic. Marilyn

Thank you Marilyn! That was what I was hoping to achieve.

It is divine! The colors are great, but the woods alone are just gorgeous! It is inviting and so appealing to the woods lover in me! I'm ready to go exploring!

Well done!

I agree, this is a beautiful place. A great walk in any season. Have you seen any others on my Big Hill Springs Park tag? This is one of my favourite places to go exploring too. ;)

I shrunk it down to 40%, and it started almost looking 3D, with quite a bit of depth to it.
