    Hi Edwin,

    Looks great

    It's a touch flat though ... just bring your black clipping point up a little and it'll really fly; I can show you what I mean if you like.

    All I've done is move the black clipping point in 10 points ...

    How many exposures did you use in this photo? Was it a very calm day? I have been having some problems getting crisp foliage in some of my HDRs because of some slight breezes. Excellent work by the way!

    I used 3 different exposures Matthew, 2 stops over 2 under & one neutral. This image was shot late in the afternoon on a calm day & with no breeze. I always use a tripod, even on a calm day, that way I'm pretty much assured of getting a reasonable result. It's all about experimentation Matthew, sometimes you win sometimes you don't, but most of all it's about enjoying the pleasure of Gods wonderful creation & taking home a record of the afternoons efforts, hopefully.
    Take care mate & happy shooting......Edwin.
