    I don't know what you call it, but it isn't HDR.

    There's no enhanced detail in the shadows or highlights that I can see. All I see is an over saturated photograph with any remaining detail wiped away from over sharpening or something, I don't know.

    If that's what you were going for, cool... but read up on what HDR is and give it another shot, I'd like to see it again.

    Here's a decent little read on it with a relatively good example:

    the pic looks really hazy to me..

    i cant remember who it is, maybe Jerry.. but someone on here wrote something a while ago that really stuck out to me.. it was a long the lines of: "before you start editing a picture, make sure its a good picture.. if your try to edit a crappy photo, to make it look good, your just doing way to much work.. take a good picture, then tweak it.."

    I don't think you really started off with a good image to begin with..

    no that's still way to overdone. The colors look really unnatural

    i thought so too.. so I no longer see a "ok" photo and say "oh i can fix that in photoshop" if the photo doesnt say "wow" to me the moment I look at it, it goes to the reject pile... i spend far to much time editing mediocre photos after a shoot, its time to just focus on the good ones, and make them even better! the longer i spend sitting on photoshop or lightroom, the less money i'm actually making, so its time to just work with the good stuff

    I'll say again... why HDR this?

    It appears to be a shot that you can get without HDR, so all HDR does is muddy up the shot.

    HDR (or rather tonemapping), is intended to give you a higher dynamic range than would be possible in a normal image. A "usual" example of this is trying to shoot the interior of a building towards a window... normally either the interior would be exposed properly and the exterior would be washed out... or the exterior would be exposed properly and the interior would be black.

    An tonemapping process to gain a more high dynamic range image solves this.

    EDITED EXAMPLE...

    Here... here is what would normally happen if you try to expose this properly for the interior...

    [​IMG]

    And here is what would happen when you expose properly for the EXTERIOR...

    [​IMG]

    The problem is that both of these images suck, but the camera simply is unable to replicate what you and I see, which is closer to this tonemapped HDR image...
