I finally redid the HDR on this one. Hope everyone likes it. I totally dig it although the I kept the original darker one as my desktop picture (cause it looks great on my mac but apparently is too dark on a PC). Rock on all and let me know what you think.

Seriously please critique this one for me. This photo has been driving me nuts since the original HDR was too dark.

5 exposure HDR processed in photomatix. Unsharp mask in GIMP.

    Beautiful effects, and it really give the feel of a dense dark forest! I can hear the water splashing, and smell the forest all around. Color, and HDR work is spectacular!! Just a wonderful all around image!!

  • I really appreciate that. I went through many different versions of this shot to get this one. I am glad you like it.
