Fox Hill in HDR

I can't decide if I like HDR or not.

I can see the merits of it, and maybe I need to practise some more.Anyway, I quite liked this when I processed it.
I'm not sure on HDR myself - suppose I'll have to give it a go. But this shot, WOW - such magnificent saturation in your colors and that reflection! Congrats!

I think this shot looks great in HDR the yellows are awesome. On the subject of HDR I think it’s very much a personal preference, what is great in one persons eyes is awful in anothers.

I love the reflections in the puddle!

Fav! I process some of my photos as HDR and I think it depends on the result. Sometimes I like it sometimes not. This is gorgeous.

@lesphoto @achilleos @egad Thank you all, and for the Fav egad. I think I agree with you all, it depends on the shot and your own mood at the time. I am thrilled that you all like it. I saw these reflections and thought, wow, I can't wait to get back home and upload!!

Lovely view and I like the clouds. I'm not a fan of HDR myself but perhaps I've just never seen it done well. i think it's just one of those things that's personal choice - some people love it, some people hate it.

@annbo Blimey, I just read your other comment on my main shot and then popped over to this album. Photographers luck played a huge part here I think. Thanks ever so for the +Fav

Brilliantly fantastic Sean..:-)

I´m not a big fan of extreme HDR either, but used with caution as you have done here the result can be magnificent. This is a Fav for me
posted April 30th, 2012  
I don't have a problem with HDR at all when it's done well, like you have here...anyway the people who tend to hate it are the ones who haven't tried it...it's all art whichever way you look at it and a personal preference so keep it up Sean if you like the results thats all that matters! :D

@bazza Cheers Bazza, really kind of you.

I would like to compare, see some shots side by side, one in HDR the other raw... I think HDR is cool for an illusional view and it's new... but my vote is still out as to whether I really accept that it's better. Saying that, I think most artistic types like to try new things, and progress from one stage to the next. Anything that stimulates creativity can't be all bad.

Wow, the reflection makes the shot for me. The effect really works on this shot. The trees look like they're out of a painting and that sky! Favd.

Amazing shot. Love the composition and the light in this picture!! Totally awesome!!

This is lovely, nice details and textures, and love those reflections! I think you did well with the HDR processing here, it's very easy to overdo it, but this is a nice job.
posted May 1st, 2012  
fav, it's beautiful and so subtle i wouldn't have known you used hdr for this. I don't quite like overdone hdr images, too artificial!
posted May 1st, 2012  
Love the reflections in the puddles !! I'm not sold on HDR either. I do prefer more natural looking photos.
posted May 1st, 2012  
Fabulous! I think it's amazing.
posted May 1st, 2012  
Saw this on PP....love it! The reflections in the puddle are wonderful. As to HDR.......if it is done to enhance the photo then ok, I find it can bring out details and textures. Of course there are times when nature has done it all for you! A fave for me!

Congrats on PP, Sean! Awesome job! Those colors are so intense.

I'm totally sold on HDR when it is done well. Certainly in this rubbish weather we're havng it helps liven colours! Like the reflection in this - great job!
posted May 2nd, 2012  
Stunning picture!
posted May 2nd, 2012  
I'm like you, undecided on HDR. I really like this and it works so well with the repetition of colour in the foreground thanks to the puddle reflection. I tried it in processing for the first time the other day on my swan about to jump in the river shot but I wasn't sure how I felt about it. Jury's still out I guess
posted May 2nd, 2012  
Love those reflections in the puddles...two dimensional as well as HDR ! I do like a bit of HDR now & again & it is fun to do & experiment I think !
posted May 2nd, 2012  
beautiful shot, congrats on PP
