    Went out photo hunting today.....Bagged this image:

    [​IMG]

    Although I used a tripod, I was in the middle of the creek and one leg was in sand... so alignment might be an issue.

    There was a big, bright yellow thing that appeared in the sky that somehow turned all the gray clouds white and blue. It scared the poopie out of me so I fired off these shots and ran home.

    Download the full-size originals here:

    HDR to your heart's content. Adjust, crop, color-correct, twist, perspective control.....

    Not much light drama to warrant an HDR here. I took your middle exposure and adjusted the histogram to provide some white in the clouds and sharpened the image. I guess this is a personal taste thing, but the HDR looks under exposed.

    Used -1, +1, and +3 exposures in Photomatix 4. Photoshop Elements 9 for crop, curves, hue/saturation and sharpening.

    Here's my take on it. A little more sinister than some. LOL... Great Images set Sparky, it was really fun to play with!
