wow why would you do that to an otherwise perfectly nice picture? I don't like the overdone contrast/clarity. no offense, but this is disgusting. I'd love to see the original/unedited version however. maybe for a more interesting perspective get the camera a little lower so that the scene stays the same but the bridge is a little lower than center height of the image.
Thank you for your comment, positive or not I am pleased when my work evokes a response. There's no offence taken at all, we're we all to like the same things the world would be exceedingly dull. As for the original, I will dig it out, in the mean time thanks for sharing your view. Simon
I like this HDRI treatment better than others of yours I've seen - the colours are more suited to it, I think, coming out less surreal than they sometimes do. I think it's a lovely example of the technique.
