Just getting back into photography and entering the digital generation. Boy things have changed ! The HDR really interested me so I thought I'd give it a try. Excuse the Photomatric Watermark, the program will be purchased.

The green spot on the botton of one of his boots was caused by a green light directly under him.

Since I saw your other thread wanting more C&C...

I know this image is a little bit older than some of the others you've posted. The composition doesn't work for me, but since this is about HDR...

This image doesn't look like it could have benefited by processing it as HDR. HDR images work best when you have deep shadow areas and bright highlight areas that just can't be recorded by the camera's sensor in one shot. This kind of shot would probably work better by playing around with lighting techniques versus playing around with HDR processing.

I think the crop is wayyyyyyyy to tight. If you could of got the entire tree with the tree skirt we would have more to talk about.
