Well composed 10

this is a very nice scene, but I think there is slightly too much contrast.

nice hdr attempt, but the sky is a little muddy and i can see some slight haloing.

Very nicely tone-mapped. I like this very much. The composition and colors are fantastic. That said, I would change a couple of things. It looks like the tone-mapping has really grayed up your clouds. I'd like to see some brighter whites in them. Also, there is such a large amount of detail in this photo. I think it would have really benefited from being larger. Either lose the border, or use the full 720 (I'm not knocking your score because of the size...just an observation).

Not really digging the "HDR" look here but nothing that hurt the score I gave it.
04/24/2007 07:52:37 AM
I think your border is too big
04/23/2007 04:25:48 PM
i find the tree branches very distracting from an otherwise excellent shot.
04/23/2007 02:29:21 PM
Looks like a painting or a puzzle picture

looks like a painting... but is that good or bad

good photo.

Really cool processing. I love this.
04/21/2007 08:11:41 AM
The frame is a killer. Loose it.
04/21/2007 01:19:55 AM
Looks overprocessed.
04/21/2007 12:56:13 AM
this could be nice, I just don't like the hdr look.
04/21/2007 12:31:55 AM
Very well done. Excellent processing-not too heavy handed. Very Norman Rockwell. - 9

Painting like feel
04/20/2007 08:26:30 AM
Nice PP, but compared to a lot of other entries here, the subject just isn't "WOW" enough. Unfortunately, I'm in a similar boat in this challenge. =) Best of luck!

Nice capture, good tone mapping, border too heavy IMHO....6
04/19/2007 07:39:31 PM
looks like a postcard.. but its so sharp or something it almost looks embossed.
04/19/2007 02:51:33 PM
Nice use of tonemapping.
04/19/2007 01:30:23 PM
I love the painting like texture.
04/19/2007 09:31:24 AM
I like the lighting and color tones. It gives the impression of an old had colored b/w image.Looks like a vintage postcard >>I get the feeling that I could turn it over and on the back would be a postmark from 1903.

Very pleasant for me to stare at, probably for a long while! Quite nostalgic.
04/18/2007 05:26:36 PM
nice painting! Very creative!
04/18/2007 09:52:24 AM
Good use of border, great shot and beatifully exposed. Well done.

Seems to be a Flemish landscape. The post processing is well visible, but this halo gives a kind of aetheral mood.
IMO the border takes too much space, is too contrasted, don't fit with the photo, is distracting.
Shame there is this modern building visible near the church, but to hide it you should have take the shot in the middle of the river :-D.

Nicely processed except for the sky. the tone mapping let you down there with some pretty big halos. A nice scene. 6
