Taken in a gardening field not far from our home back in September. A second foray into the wonderful world of single image simulated HDR processing.

Of late my passion seems to lie in digital abstract creations, but I have always loved the beauty in nature and the endless possibilities in macro photography!!Appreciate all and every comment!!!
You’re really good. Most people I know over use the HDR process and make their photos look like weird paintings. You gave it just enough touch to make it look more “here” ~ Cherie
Much appreciated sylphieheart!!!I have been experimenting (behind the scenes) with many of my photos using this particular HDR simulation process to see if there was any improvement over what I had submitted.. and many came out looking exactly as you describe it.. way over the top…so while it is a process I do intend to use in future.. I will endeavor to use it sparingly.. and only when the end result seems best suited to it. Thank you for your thoughtful critique!!!!! Glad this one at least “worked” for you!!!
Very nice Ken , you certainly know your stuff!!
Many many thanks Anthony for your very kind comments!!!I am just having some fun playing with this technique (it’s a lazy man’s HDR process lol) There is still MUCH to learn my friend.. and while the chances at the moment are relatively slim that I will be getting into “true” HDR processing (at least in the near future) one never knows!!!
Well Ken I sure do see a difference in your photos when using this software. Well done.
Thank you Paul!!!As I mentioned .. not every photo works well with this process.. but some really do seem to have a bit more pop, and I am pleased with the purchase… just have to watch that I don’t go “overboard” with it – a possibility that was alluded to in sylphieheart’s comments above.
Ken! What’s going on with you? <—- I mean that in a good way. I have enjoyed many of your photos, over the time we’ve come to know each other, but, these last couple are way different! You’ve been learning things, or you got a new camera, or …. I could read the description and realize you are a new fan of HDR or whatever it is.
Well, well .. you could teach other people who use it a thing or two. Beautiful, beautiful photography.
LOL.. yes wonders will never cease Arletta!!.Who said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks eh.. woof!!!!Actually I was inspired to try an “HDR effect” by barkeypf (Paul) who once had commented jokingly that he seemed to be the only one on RB not using HDR. I realized immediately (such astuteness on my part is a rarity lol) that I too was not using HDR.. so began my search for the simplest possible way to induce an “HDR look” into an othewrwise non HDR photo.. and was blessed to find the “one-touch” plug-in that I am now using. It’s called ReDynaMix if you are interested. It also has a “one-touch” Orton effect.. which I shall undoubtedly try in the future. Many thanks for you encouragement!!!!
This is just lovely Ken, beautiful texture and colour very nice!
Thank you so very much Tracy!!!!
Well, I might be interested, except that’s for Adobe Photoshop, per my looking it up, and I don’t do Adobe Photoshop. It is a very good effect, though.
C’est la guerre!!!Thanks again!!
Nice composition, rich colors… Just great Ken!!
Many many thanks Rabi!!!
