    Hey all. I kind of liked the simplicity of this shot. Not much to look at, but I think I kind of like that! What do you think? Also, just mucking around with some new sliders in LR4.

    Thanks Bobo, it was a pretty interesting site, that's for sure!
    Another image of the same subject - HDR'd just to my liking. Is it odd that this is how I think things are SUPPOSED to look??

    I'm a little unhappy with the halo-ing around the trailer, and tress on the left, but not too unhappy.

    Andrew I like this image. The straight lines in the concrete, the curvature of the silos, the light and shadows, and all of them together pointing up to that beautiful sky. And yes, a simple capture with complexity.

    Hi Andrew. The halos at the skyline and saturated colors are a common result of the tonemapping process and gives away the fact that you are using an HDR technique. To make it look more natural, you can blend in some of the original image, particularly at the skyline where the tops of the trees are unnaturally dark and the sky is unnaturally light. Usually with HDR, you would have been able to see the detail under the trailer and in the other shadows as well, but it will all come together as you work your HDR skills over time.
