Outstanding! I love this type of landscape....some dream of sandy beaches and palm trees. I dream of exactly what you captured.

My shot? If so many thanks.

If there is no cloud, it is a view I see every day. Yest I know I am a lucky so and so!

Got last minute football tickets today, but best of all they were in the sun with great sunset view, and the Broncos scored at sunset so I got the mini-fireworks in as well.

Also my first 100% blend-only HDR (I usually use HDR software for at least part of it, then maybe blend on top, but it tonemapping didn't work so well for this image).

Not sure if this one goes too far, but I am trying to find the balance... I enjoy the more realistic HDR images. Did I cook it too much?

It was a legitimate storm (see the rain on the right if the frame) this day, I got wet a few times!

3 frame pano, each frame is three images -2, -1, +1 tonemapped in Photomatix and combined into a pano in PS.

Nice!

I just knew the Chargers were going to fall down at the last yesterday - preventing my Chiefs from gaining the AFC West crown. :(

Not overcooked to my eye, just a powerful and dramatic capture.

Here's one from a recent trip to the Bisti Badlands:

IMAGE LINK: https://flic.kr/p/CEfV​aW  (external link) _DSC9039 (external link) by Jon Blake (external link), on Flickr

This was a 5 (+1EV) shot merge in Lightroom which looked a bit over the top for me, so I then masked in the original sky and foreground shots overwriting most of the HDR except for portions of the edge.

I don't think you went too far with this at all. If anything, I'd make it a bit more dramatic by adding some contrast.

Really interesting shot Jon. To me, it has a 'miniature landscape' look to it too.

There's a pleasing asymmetry to this one but I think it would have had more impact if you had posted a 1280 pixels wide image.

Thanks, I will give it a second (ok, three thousanth!) look in LR.

Than you, I try to create some drama/movement of the eye in my landscapes. I want to try your suggestion but am not sure I totally understand. For a 1280px image, should I crop the current one (and where would you suggest the crop be?) or simply re-size the entire image? Thanks,

The image in your post is is approx. 900 pixels wide. Presumably it was much larger before you resized it for uploading. So why did you not resize to 1280 pixels wide? Panoramas seldom have impact when they are small

Ahh, I understand now and totally agree. Honestly, I just put the 500px.com URL into the forum "fetch" engine.

The resizing is all via POTN. If you want to see the original, here is a direct link:

https://500px.com …from=user&user_​id=3873018 (external link)

Is there a way to dictate to the forum what sizing of a picture to embed?

That looks so much better on my screen! :-)

If you host a file on POTN (by using the Upload facility), the original size will be retained up yo 1280 pixels along its longest side. If you upload an image larger than 1280 pixels, it will appear as a thumbnail which you can click on.

This image is 1464 pixels wide and was uploaded directly to POTN
Edit: Hmm! That didn't work, they must have increased the max size!
