    One of my many shots out in Thailand, and one of the few which I thought would benefit from a b&w conversion. (I did add it to the end of my HDR series in the landscape section, but hoped it would be worthy of critique here).

    Shot with a Sigma 10-20. HDR formed from 1 RAW and processed in Photomatix. Converted to b&w in CS2 using the channel mixer. High pass fiter applied to bring out the detail in the bricks.

    Gone for quite an 'overdone' final image as I think it works in an 'arty style'.

    C&C welcome and appreciated as always :)

    Nicely done; one of the very few over-done HDRs I've seen where the technique really works. It looks to me like the set drawing for a Batman movie; very surreal. I might consider reducing the highlights in some of the white bricks especiall on the near corner and left face, a little bit, but other than that, good job.
