These two photos were taken of the Bow River in Banff. They are both HDR images. Does anyone like these?

I love the scenes but I think the HDR is a bit overdone. I would tone it back some for a more natural (albeit less colorful) final image.

Agree that the HDR is over worked.

Gorgeous scene, but, yes, the HDR is a bit too much.

I prefer the composition of the second image and both are over processed for my taste. The first image feels too busy and cramped on the right side and the partial view of the boat and the dock are distracting. The second image has a much better composition and a lot of details to provide a very pleasing mood. With less HDR processing, I think the second image could be a wall hanger for sure.

Just take the final, and the original, then layer that final on top, reduce opacity of it until it just backs-off the cooking a touch, would be my approach.

That being said, you like 'em, you print and hang 'em.

It is really just that simple. Your opinion is the only one that counts when it comes to your work!

The green of the trees reflected in the water doesn't match the actual green of the trees. Actually, the colors reflected in the water overall just don't look natural. Reflections should be darker than the thing reflected.

The HDR is overdone for my tastes, but it's done very well.

I'm going there this Fall, first time. Appreciate any suggestions for the trip - I've got 7 nights to enjoy the area.

Thanks,

I'd say leave the camera, the area is so beautiful you'll never get more than 1/2m from the hotel! Simply a stunning location, took my breath away..........

The color difference between the trees and tree reflections is odd.
