Site still locking me out from giving you anymore than a measly 5 star! A cyber 10 to you for this stunning image! The sky is truly amazing with the lighting shimmering off the scene. The boat is a great touch and the d.o.f. is quite amazing and stunning. The sharp focus shows all the beauty and the reflections add the special touch to make this image spectacular to look at! Mindboggling Echo!

Awesome.

I have mixed feelings about the sky only because its a little dark but it is one of things where I would have to see it the way it is and a bit lighter in the upper right hand corner.

What version of Nik software did you use?

When you take all 16 shots are they bracketed through the camera or are you changing the exposure yourself?

HEY this is supposed to be a review not 20 questions! LOL

Sorry, just interested.

    I used Nik Color efex 4, Nik Dfine, The exposures depend on what DSLR i use. My D70 has AEB. Automatix Exposure Bracketing. SO i shoot 3fps then change the shutter speed up or down & shot again.

    If i use the D3100 i manually do them all. I either change my exposure compensation or i alter the shutter speed. Depends on wat i'm shooting.

    If you need to anything about HDR let me know dude, Thanks a bunch

Fabulous! Colors are so very beautiful! Masterfully blended! Absolutely breathtaking! Cheers! The depth of field and lighting are amazing! There is enough texture to make it feel like you could just walk into it.

Comment from bosch2


Sorry I'm out of higher stars. I would have awarded them, even though I feel there is a bit too much orange in the colors. What I love is the sharp detail in every bit of the work from the peeling paint on the boat to the turbulent skies.

Very nice. Would of like to have seen the picture before to compare for after. I think by judging what I see that the original was even pretty. Love the colors. They are warm and inviting. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice indeed! However, I would like a bit more realistic colors. I guess, to give a hard-light effect was your intention. In any case, a well done HDR indeed!
