Part of my walks I found this old pit. Decided to HDR just to see how it would come out

C&C welcome

I like the first one.

Frame it and hang it on your wall in the bedroom :D

My eye wanders around the image looking for a focal point, doesn't find one, then wanders off elsewhere. I also see no need for an HDR with this scene. I think you need to think harder before taking photos - like you were saying in that other thread.

Yep i agree. HDR is not my cuppa but you have to try these things.

Does this have more of an impact? Just not finding my vision still :(

I think the HDR came out as it would with a normal exposure. Even. :)
Try some additional contrast. Looks good anyway.
HDR is best when there's several stops of different exposures throughout an image, such as dark foreground, and bright sky.


The latest edit is cool!

The black and white version provides a much better focal point for the image.

No matter what you do to it it's still a photo of nothing in particular, IMHO nothing of interest.

So what do you recommend. Im so dam frustrated at shooting crap. 10 days of rubbish. Im better than these snap shots.

Oh Tim thanks for been honest with the photos.

Tony, those images are not high dynamic range, in fact they have quite a low dynamic range.

I prefer the b/w image, seems more to it, I have seen a few HD images and must admit on what i've seen, not a fan, they looked as if they were over contrasted/sharpend. Maybe they were, but not seen a good one yet.

I think I prefer the B&W, but really intrigues me about this is what IS this? Why are all these bones here?
