Fall colors in HDR
1

Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum and these are my first HDR photos were shot with  Cannon 5Dmkii & Sigma 24-70mm/Canon 17-40mm lenses. I am still trying to improve my editing skills so C&C are welcome

By the way, these shots were taken at Harvard Arboretum before Hurricane Sandy slammed the City of Boston.

Best,
Tony

Re: Fall colors in HDR

My favorite is number 3. I'm still struggling with the intensity of color in many HDR photos. Buyers seem to like them but I'm not sure I do.

Saturation is too high to be true

Re: Fall colors in HDR

Some may like the over-cooked quality of the HDR treatment here, but to me it seems "a bit too much."

I also like #3.  However HDR is not my taste in general. It's difficult for foliage as usually leafs are moving vibrantly in this windy season so it’s hard to blend them together without some blurry looks.

I have a few foliage photos in last two weeks from single photo however.

A bit overdone for my taste.   Looks like you have some nice shots there.  How do they look withouth HDR?
