Decided not to take pictures of the lighthouse so i went and spent some time setting up this image. I thought the HDR grunge look would look good on this so I got photomatix pro and played with it a bit.

A little overdone in my opinion and unrealistic.

HDR is good and all, but only in moderation.

You should post the the original and maybe one with just slight HDRing.

Wow! I love it. It is one of the best artistic renderings I have seen using HDR. Nice job...

It would be fun to see the original, if you can.

Thank you, I'll post the originals later when I get home.

I don't mind the over-the-top look here, but what bothers me the most is this "glow" the whole image has to it. Looks like you hit it with a bloom on the highlights or something.

The realistic HDR just looked like ever other shot I've seen of Peggy's cove. This place gets photographed thousands of times per day in the summer, I was looking for something that hasn't been done before and trying to make it stand out from the rest of the regular tourist shots you see. Thanks for your input

Thats alright, as long as you like it thats all that matters.

You say you dont want a shot that looks like every other shot there, so maybe try and compose is in a uniquely fascinating way?

The composition is really nice . I'm sure it was quite nice before the HDR. I like it this way and I'm sure the original will also be stunning. I think we have to look at them for what they . An expression of your artistic thoughts. Therefore they have merit in my opinion. There is room enough for all . Just because youre different doesnt make you right or wrong . JMHO..

Thanks again for the nice comments and constructive replies. I think the grunge look works best with old rusted trucks, abandoned building and all things old and dilapidated. This is the first grunge landscape that I tried for fun and I was surprised at the outcome. Of course with all processes there is always room to grow and improve on the work flow. I think if the buildings had no color and the sky was just flat grey or flat blue this wouldn't have worked out. I was too busy last night to put up the originals like I said I would but I will get them up soon. I also have a natural HDR of this and will post it as well so you can see the difference. Thanks again for looking.

I like it...whats wrong with making something different. Looks Alice in Wonderland-esque to me.
