The treatment of the photo is too artificial, I also see some light at the edges.

Thanks for your honest opinion. Reevaluating it, it is a little heavy handed. Hard to be subject with your own work, so unbiased views are helpful... It's 3 separate exposures run through an HDR program. I was trying to process it so it didn't look HDR, just very detailed...

I agree that it seems a too 'artificial' or whatever you want to call it. If you're wanting to boost the details you might want to try a high pass sharpen with a mask, then painting back what details you want to specifically stick out. Again, you have to be careful with a high pass because it can look fake as well.

Overall, though, neat shot.

Thanks! I use high pass a lot as an overlay on a new layer but apply it to the whole image and then use the opacity slider to adjust... I'll experiment with the mask so I can have more control..

Agreed, the HDR is too overdone and the haloing is quite distracting (for me at least). It could work if you dropped down the Amount slider.

Are you using Photomatix Pro?

No, just a free program called Dynamic Photo HDR... I'm not big into HDR, just playing..

I'm in the same boat. I have tried some HDR with LR, CS5 and Photomatix trying to enhance the photo but without the HDR "look". It is a fine line.
