I wish it was bigger. It looks like a pretty cool shot. Not fond of the first one at all, but the last one is nice.

Love the first one! There's a hair or something in the sky on the right that needs sorting but I think you did a great job - a definate wall hanger!

That hair is called lightning :lol:

This storm caused a lot of damage to the area. Power outages, downed trees, house fires from lightning strikes. My wife was not happy that I ventured out.

Thanks everyone for the comments and ideas!!

Isn't this where we brag about our gear? I have a super hot wife, a really cool dog, lots of bikes, oh and some overly expensive camera gear.

I liked the first version also. You make a photograph worse the more you mess with it. Stick with what your creative intent was and make a few tweaks. I like the perspective correction but I liked the warm cast to your first image.

Very surreal, like both styles. How many stops did you blend for the HDR?

That was four stops. During storms you sometime get that surreal lighting, this was definitely one of those times.

I like the first one as well, but then I'm a sucker for post-apocalyptic and zombie movies. ;)

I like your second try a lot. The image seems a bit off kilter though, maybe tilt it a bit to the left. Otherwise decent try for a first HDR, cool spot to take a photo.

I also like the first one. OK, it's not a perfect photograph, but it is nice looking nonetheless.

I think the latter looks best because of the woder color range. HDR is all about the artist's preference to what they want to depict. While the forst photo was too warm for my taste, you could totally like that intention. aside from the color, some things i liked was the soft feel. Someone above said it doesnt look sharp but I kind of like HDR that is a bit softer so for me that wa snot a problem. keep up the good work...it is a very nice start.

I like the one in cooler temps and here's why I say that: it creates a better contrast to the clouds and emphasizes steel and progression through architectural elements. You can see the dark clouds and the multiple colors of the buildings being reflected in the body of water. Also, the HDR really brings out the vertical lines within the buildings. This gives off a Utopian perspective.

The post apocalyptic version doesn't contain elements that would emphasize its color palette. Everything is still clean and the bronze gives the body of water a copper finish, which omits the details of the reflection and doesn't create enough contrast. Hope this helps and you did an amazing job on your first HDR!


I like pretty things :D

Sorry- Not posting to critique, but have to say it's cool to click on something, and immediately recognize the scenery. I have wanted for a long time to photograph the Columbus skyline, and just last Sunday finally got down there and took, well...not a skyline so much, but more of a "building shot". Heres my post: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1249938

Unless something unforseen comes up, I plan to head back down there this Sunday evening again, and would like to be there before it gets dark. I live in Western Pataskala. Where are you?
