    About a month ago, I was looking specifically for a scene that had sun peeking through the clouds in a country setting. I was glad to be out and about when I stumbled across this particular setting. This one is part of a series of other field and meadow photos I have been posting lately. C&C greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking.

    Thank you all very much. Truly appreciated! :)

    Andrew, this is an HDR, so most of the processing was done in photomatix with the luminosity, strength, and light smoothing controls. This particular image also benefited from tweaking the saturation highlights and saturation shadows just a tad. I always finish it up in PS with some extra tweaking and sharpen it for web viewing. Thanks for asking.

    great shot.

    about the post-processing work: what is this photomatix you're talking about? can you do the same pp with just photoshop too?

    Thanks again for the nice comments!

    Thanks ernie.
    photomatix is a program that many prefer to use for HDRs. You can search up a lot of information about it in this forum and also in google, which is much more info than I can give you in one thread. Yes, you can do pretty much the same thing by taking 3 or more exposures and using Merge to HDR in PS. I prefer using photomatix.

    Another great shot with nice PP:

    Good work NJ, your work is convincing me to shell out the $99 and start on the HDR learning curv. :)
