No offence taken Marco. Had another quick go at it so let me know what you think of this effort, might still be overdone but hey I liked the first one so what do I know. BTW It was me that was being offensive previously. I am sure your images are not dull to look at. Please accept my apologies, regards, BD.
It is not a problem of my understanding or less HDR. Regardless of the specific processing behind this image, to me (and I would like to emphasize to me) the contrast and particularly the colors of this image look unnatural. The green, blue, and white look much more "electric" than those I normally see with my eyes when taking a walk in nature. Just my honest feedback with no intention to offend.
Sorry but what part of HDR don't you understand. Its not over-processed or fake as you imply and it has been praised by other sites I have shown it on. If this is OTT by your standards, your images must make very dull viewing. BD.
Thanks! We couldn’t figure out where they came from but, apparently, they “escaped” from Arizona State University research facility, I found out. I am glad they found home in our backyard. Very vocal bunch, too!
