2nd shot is great! Is there a tutorial to "combine" photos like this in PS6? I have LR and Photomatix but have never been very happy with my HDR attempts. I have access to PS6, so I would like to practice this with some old bracketed shots that I have.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

I actually learn this technique from Serge Ramelli on youtube. It's simple and I like the result better than the image I got from HDR programs.

Thanks for sharing this. I gave it a try on a 3-frame series I ran through Photomatix a while back, and am really pleased with how it worked!

#2.

I was trying to think why #2 still wasn't quite 100% for me. You asked about saturation, but I woudn't necessarily change the sky, nor the red roof or the blue.

However, I think it has an overall saturation that is a bit high.

So, if you could do some selective de-saturation - maybe greens and darks/shadows - it would remove the slightly oversaturated look without removing the saturation in key areas.

Subtle difference, but I think it helps a bit. I also reduced saturation in the reflection a tad. Maybe it doesn't make enough difference to mess with in this case, but just something to try - selective desaturation can work wonders at preventing an image looking oversaturated without 'dumbing' it down too much. Can also lead the viewer around the frame more effectively.

Thank you for the suggestion. The edited image does brighten up a bit which, while subtle, does improve the image overall. Will play with it more :)

I'll take number one with a bit of the bottom and right cropped.
