Challenge: Masters' Free Study II (Advanced Editing VII)

First attempt at using HDR tool in photoshop. Apparently I suck at it as I think a curves adjustment on a single mid range photo would have accomplished the same effect. Fog is from blowing on the lens. Sparkly things in the falls are from using a flash in 2 of the exposures in an a sad attempt to get the falls to sparkle.

Thanks for the comments.

Its a nice shot. I would suggest more hightlights in the shot.

I like the gloomy effect the blur gives, but I almost wish something was in focus... or perhaps that the subject was more prominent? In any case though, you've done a great job evoking a very mournful mood here, and the composition is terrific - excellent work.

lovely twisting composition that draws me in and out and round and round. Wonderful tones, too. Quite an exquisite picture. I give you my Posthumous Yellow Ribbon.

Photo feels a little too dark.

A nice shot and nice idea, a little more detail in the person would be good. IMO :)

having a hard time believing something about the background - the blur on the trees looks unnatural, particularly in the top right. Shouldn't really hang me up so much as it apparently is.

I like the lone leaf in the lower right. Still bothered by the background - now the upper left is seeming wrong.

Finally I've spotted the person under the umbrella, even though the water and shape looks like it should have driven my eye right there - too busy being confused by the trees and rambling.

Subtle. Took a moment to see the umbrella but it works.

A bit on the soft side, but boy that leaf in the bottom corner is a neat touch. I'll bump you a point just for that. 6
