They may range in size from pebbles to boulders, but should be separate from the land itself.
this looks like part of the land, a boulder or rock is something that can be moved. IMO

Although I do admit the image on the back of the trailer is pretty cool and worth a memorabilia shot along with following theme. I do not believe there is anything that sticks out as impressive about the photograph (angle, focus, etc,,,.). Sorry, GL in the future.

Um, author if you cannot see that this is out of focus well... perhaps maybe a trip to the optometrist might help

I think the general idea of HDR is to gain detail in both the shadows and highlights so the range is closer to what we see ourselves. Our cameras are more limited than our eyes.

I would have to agree. This looks kine of like a photo negative, almost like you inverted it first. But the colors are cool so GL!

You should have straitened your horizon. This angle makes the lake looks like all the water is about to run out. Next time...

How do we know it is out of focus?............is that a serious question, or are you playing with us?
Cropping and zooming the shot will not alter the focus.
Reshooting will alter the focus, by getting the focus right in the first place.

One of the downsides of HDR is the images stop looking real. this a great effort, but, imo, this falls into the 'unreal' trap. good effort for a first try though.

I agree with locks.... great first try.. watch out for overdoing the halos.... sometimes it can be really cool.... but most of the time it just looks overdone.

avatar locksmagic

Not bad for a first attempt Next time though try setting your smoothing higher so you don't get the halos. Good luck and keep trying different things and you'll be cranking out great HDR's in no time.
