    Ok...so after my botched first attempt (thanks to all those that liked it :) ) here is my next effort.

    This is a three shot HDR, Infrared. The composition isn't the strongest, nor is the subject matter for IR, but I'm happy with the overall outcome of the shadows/highlights. I'm sure this would be more impressive in an area with more green foilage...but I think it's a nice twist on the desert :)

    To me it looks better than your first attempt. It is much easier on the eye.

    Thanks Steph, that's what I was hoping to hear :)
    The first was +/- 2 stops in the bracket. With the IR, I just think that opened up way too many shadows. I would have to check the exif, but I think this one was +/- 0.67ev...roughly?
