Great shot - really like it
I was glaning thru my portfolio and noticed you had commented on several of my pics. Thanks - I can use all the help I can being a novice and just learning. My son (JoshuaRainey.Photography) is a member her eand has his degree from U of Oregon in photography, but he moved to Portland, so I'm getting feedback from anyone (including him) to better my work.
Be blunt - be straight - I'll learn---

Thanks again..
Jerry

Wow.....amazing editing skills. It turned out beautiful!

I really don't understand how you did this ... or this part of the advanced editing rules ...

You must:
create your entry from a single capture.

... but the end result is DROP DEAD gorgeous!

wow
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/19/2006 08:35:31 AM
Lovely reflection and colors. Straight on perspective is imposing, I wonder if there is a more interesting angle? With this perspective, consider perspective correction with advanced editing, squaring up the lines completely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2006 11:26:04 PM
Surreal
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2006 08:39:00 AM
Wow, stunning colors and detail. I really like this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2006 12:08:18 PM
Holy schneike! Beautiful colors! This looks like a painting. I'm serious, the colors are amazing. How did you do it? Gorgeous blue sky and fall colors. Great detail in the building, but excellent smoothness to the sky and water (no noise! yay!).

This is a stellar piece of art.

If you didn't have the tilt to the church it would have been much better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2006 05:02:43 PM
This looks more HD, then it does HDR. But, I'll be the first to admit I don't fully understand HDR. So in that case, rock on. DNS GL.

Quite magical.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2006 06:52:38 AM
Love the contrast but its a little wonkey
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 11:30:19 PM
Nice image with really good detail. However, there is slight hayloing around the towers indicating that the process was taken a little bit too far.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 10:59:14 PM
speachless. amazing photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 08:45:34 PM
I detect a minor tilt to the right. Beautiful work otherwise
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 07:33:24 PM
Bold, vibrant and full of what HDR can do.
Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 04:40:08 PM
My only grip about this shot is that the horizon isn't level. Other than that really good shot with just the right amount of saturation.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 12:46:16 PM
Great shot!...well done dynamically...love it...uniform and balanced with enough tension to create interest.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 11:51:05 AM
good shot but still has some overexposure on the top.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/14/2006 09:45:35 AM
Just beautiful, love the symetry of the composition. One of my tops
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 11:50:32 PM
Oh this would be so much better if it were not leaning!! But the reflection and the colors are truly amazing, so I really like the shot as a whole.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 10:07:40 PM
very nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 08:40:29 PM
Very nicely done. great colors and reflection. I would have liked to see more symmetry and inclusion of the whole reflection. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 07:44:01 PM
I gave this a 9 I would like to have seen the top of the buildings reflection, so I could have given it a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 05:33:04 PM
I like it when they look like drawings and this is the case. 9 from me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 04:51:02 PM
Beautiful, but your horizon doesn't seem straight. Kinda appears to be tilting to the right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 04:48:13 PM
unfortunately is oblique
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 02:38:36 PM
Wow! It almost looks like a painting. Very nice.

The use of HDR to bring out the tires in the pond was excellent. However, the colors of the trees, flowers and water are too vibrant for my taste.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 01:42:53 PM
The blue sky is just a bit much
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 01:13:30 PM
I like the idea and attempt. I would prefer if the building was straight though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 12:08:57 PM
Nice color and clarity. To bad you forgot to straighten it out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 11:24:28 AM
Would have liked it more if I could see the top of the towers in the reflections.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 11:16:14 AM
10!!!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 09:58:04 AM
I wish I could see the whole reflection of the building. I like the color. Looks like you pumped them up a bit, but it works for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 09:52:20 AM
This is well done and works well within the challenge. I wish the horizon had been a little straighter, I keep wanting to tilt my head to the right to straighten. I also wish I had the whole reflection. HOwever I realize that without going super wide or further away that maynot be possible. this is a 7 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 09:51:53 AM
Great shot! Needs to be straightened a bit, though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 07:24:41 AM
Looks like you used HDR to its full advantage. Don't care for the tilt but otherwise looks great.8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 03:00:10 AM
Great shot. Could you have cloned out those specks on the lower right?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 12:57:56 AM
great colors, can even see a few coints in the reflecting pool, well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 12:46:46 AM
Great shot and use of HDR, it has a very dreamy quality with a sharp focus that keeps it real.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 12:35:56 AM
Yay! I was tempted to take a picture of the SLC temple for this challenge! Nice picture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2006 12:28:03 AM
This would be perfect if not tipping Rt. Lovely!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
