Ah, very nice. That's how an HDR should be...not overprocessed and used lightly to bring out subtle details.

Thanks for the submission.

Fantastic contrast and colours. And as said above, excellent use of HDR too. :)

Lovely submission, thanks.

Beautifull wallpaper !

Exactly the place i'd love to be when i walk outside my home ! :-)

But i'm happy where i live (alps in France) as i can find beautifull places to photograph too !

I should do more HDR because result is seducing ...

Sorry for my bad english & thank you again to please my eyes on my desktop !

Nice shot. Your other wallpapers are nice, but this one works as a photo as well.

Great shot but there seems to be a little black area in the water shaped like a fish. Does anyone else see that? Its a quick fix but I can't take my eye off it.

This photo shows both the strengths and weaknesses of HDR. Lots of interesting detail is revealed, particularly in the trees, where shadow detail would usually be lost in an average exposure of such a scene. At the same time there is no depth, despite the river winding away. The distant background is as sharp as the near foreground. Not even the human eye has that much depth of field, even on a day as clear as this one apparently was.

Thanks for all the nice comments! About that fish: I honestly have no clue how it got there. Even if that little fish jumped out of the water, the moment I shot the 7 frames, there would have been ghosting while processing the HDR. But since there's nothing, I guess it must have been something else...

That's not a fish. That's something sticking out of the water.

Anyway, I couldn't help but add this one as soon as I saw it. It's so beautiful!

I love the use of HDR in this pic because it is almost invisible..there are no ghosts and the photo doesn't look an artefact!Nobody said anything about the sky..I think it's wonderful how it looks in this photo..it remembers me this: http://interfacelift.com/wallpaper_beta/Df734395/01919_elementary_1280x800.jpg but I don't know which is the best!Keep your wonderful work Macindows!

Macindows, my monitor is set at 1680 x 1050. The initial viewing of the image didn't quite work, I think, owing to the lack of "relief" in the grassy plane. I found that cropping and then rotating the image horizontally had a marked impact for the better. I then did something that I rarely do; I looked at the image at various resolutions. For the reason cited above, cropping does influence the final result. In any event, you're still aces with me.

Hey Stubulman, thanks for your comment! I'm not quite sure what you meant. ;-) Why didn't the initial viewing of the image work out for you? What do you mean by lack of "relief"? Do you mean the agitation and high contrast of the grass which originated due to processing the HDR? I could send you a revised version, if you want.

Hello, Macindows. Thanks for the reply. I suppose what I'm trying to convey is that the plane of the grass is almost totally flat. It has few if any protrusions or depressions. The flat plane of the water contributes to this as well.

I hesitated using the word "relief" but here is its definition from my computer's dictionary: the state of being clearly visible or obvious due to being accentuated in some way.

Example: the setting sun threw the snow-covered peaks into relief. Also I'm sure you have seen a 'relief' map. To state this as a pun: the plane is plain.

Please do not worry about my petty observations. I downloaded the image into my wallpaper folder where it is nestled with the rest of your work! IFL members owe you a great debt of thanks for your contributions. Stu B.
