Friends,

I did some HDRs this morning and wanted to run one of them by you for your critique and comments. I quite like the fading of the light and the sense of depth the image conveys, but I would have hoped for some deeper and richer colors which I'm not sure were achieved. How do you usually accomplish this?

Here's the image:

I'd love some pointers and suggestions. Thanks a lot!
Rafa.

Thanks Chonhzilla, I tweaked it a bit further after seeing the city so darkened, and this was the new version. I'm not sure which I prefer yet, but the second has a little more overall punch, while the first has a bit more depth.

I think the framing is a bit distracting. The second one is better but I'd still be careful about 3D framing.


My imagine composition sucks. I need a heavier lens.

Thanks uOpt, as you can see from the first to the second, I'm still working on the best option. I agree with you and didn't like the double-offset on the first framing version. I'm more fund of the second one, but perhaps, as you mention it, having no shadow would be more all-purpose.

I'll look into it.
Rafa.

I like the second one more due to the brightness. Great capture!
