    This is better Deon, However I think it needs a little more contrast to bring out the shadows.
    soz :o(

    Its got lots of detail, Deon, so I can see why you’d want to HDR it. I’m leaning to something between the two, although the sky here stands on its own as is…..wonderful clouds. There’s a quick and dirty contrast trick with Unsharp mask…Amount 20 and Radius 50 often adds a nice bit of extra depth….flipping the sliders a little bit either way, depending on taste. Extra contrast might be all it needs, that often ups the saturation slightly too….

    Uyeah… so much better….

    Still you have some work to do on the foreground… maybe just a light S curve layer, masking out the sky.

    Beautiful. The muted colors work well here. I agree, the fore ground has some detail that could be popped out some in curves and with a mask. It is such an awesome shot though!!

    Sorry. I like the first mch better. I’m glad you tried different concepts though.

    THanks Danny.
    Funny how there are two very strong different opinions on this one.
    Maybe a topic for a journal.

    Some where between the two i think Deon,realy comes down to personal taste.
