    Hi Franscisco - Good image - showcase example for HDR techniques. The reflections in the RHS window are good as are those from the table top. The only point I would suggest is s spot of perspective correction on the church tower as the whole image leans to the right.

    Cheers

    Have a guess :)

    Re: Near the church

    Hi Francisco,

    Nice job

    I wondered about 3 small things though ...

    - There looks like there might be a bit of a colour cast,

    - The sky seemed perhaps just a little over-saturated, and

    - I wondered if the forground area was lacking a bit of contrast (ie a bit flat)

    Hope you don't mind, but I've tweaked a few things to see if you think this is better or worse ...

    A good technical example of HDR. But I agree with David about the perspective needing correction - that sloping umbrella line makes it worse.

    Re: Near the church

    Colin of course, this is important constructive criticism:

    - It is logical that there is some yellow color cast, I think we should respect the dominant produced by lighting, lamps incasdescentes here. If too cold and does not seem natural, your version too cold, in my point of view. What would happen if in a warm sunset orange eliminate this dominant characteristics? Would not it be logical to you? I can tell you that my monitor is calibrated periodically

    -You may be right, though it was blue when I do not know if I'll be gone a little to saturate.

    -I see on my monitor or contrast the two versions, yours and mine.

    Carregwen, I think you're right, I should have straightened the umbrella, I will try to correct the fall of the tower as you have found perfectly.
    thank you both for your records

    Corrected:

    I have fixed the inclination of the tower I added a little contrast to the ground, desaturated the sky and a slight correction of dominance.
    Besides also, I have corrected the distortion of the tower at the back:

    Hi Francisco,

    I hear what you're saying - I don't disagree with the temperature side of things (I made it neutral where as I agree that more on the warm side would probably look better) ... but on the tint side (green / magenta axis) it also had a big swing towards a magenta cast, which I don't think flattered the image. Perhaps try using one of the walls around the table as a neutral reference to kill the tint, and then manually adjust the temperature to see if it improves it?

    I will try what you say to see if it looks better, thanks
