A path in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada fake HDR’ed from a single raw exposure then worked over in Topaz Adjust.

I used a Pentax K-X with the 18mm-55mm kit lens.

Criticism is encouraged here. I tend to learn more from my mistakes.

    Hi Myron. As someone who ask for critiques on every post I make, yet seldom get any real observations or onions that I so desperately seek, I applaud you openness and eagerness for real feedback. I think you did a fine job here. It looks very natural in both color and contrast. One point I would like to make, and try to remember myself, is your perspective. So often I find myself standing and making a photo from my natural height. Slight laziness maybe. I would suggest maybe crouching down and using a higher f/stop maybe, to gain a more unique view. Just a thought. Cheers.

  • Very refreshing. It’s nice to here that a shot is appreciated but I want to know what you really think. Thank you for that and I will put your advise into action. Really. I will. I’m actually very excited about using your insight. You hit the nail on the head with the laziness. I just don’t get down into the dirt often enough. Thank you very much.
