    Went to Disneyland about a week ago. Experimented for the first time with HDR. I like the results but want to refine them more. Any tips, advice, and critiques are greatly appreciated. Thanks!! $export2.jpg $export.jpg

    Yes nice work for your firs attempt. Second one I like best better composition. If you are familiar with photoshop use your original exposures to mask out that blow area in the sky.

    Good job.

    Thank you for the advice! I'll play around in photoshop to tone down the blown out area.

    i like it, but the blue seems a bit neon, in the second one, it may be less distracting if you desaturated the blue a little bit
