    i went back to kirklees boating club nr oldham, lancs to take some snowy pic on sunday

    these footprints greeted me there - how did they get there?? there seemed to be no prints going in - just these coming out!!


    processed in hdr to give the buildings in the background detail - i tried without hdr and the background was just silhouetted (see the bw version)

    In the HDR version, the building is slightly soft. Whether that was from your aperture or camera shake, I don't know. It's gone in the black and white version though.

    Maybe you are not happy with it because the HDR didn't work out that well?


    A question that I have, I am NOT trying to start a HDR debate or etc, but do you only shoot HDR's?

    no i dont only shoot hdr - although it may look that way

    but due to time constraints i find i get a quick win out of hdr processing compared to regular photoshop processing - i do feel its a bit of a cheat and i am doing a lot more 'ordinary' editing now.
    i sometimes doubt my abilities and compare myself too harshly to the best but i should just tell myself it prob takes years to be there.
    sorry to pour my heart out on you!! - and you and others have helped to give me a wakeup call to look at how i do things.

    thanks
