A pseudo hdr made in photomatix from a single file. Opened in raw, adjusted tone, temp, clarity, vibrance and noise reduction. Then opened in photoshop, adjusted lighting and levels, straightened and cropped. Back to raw where I toned the clarity down again. Then sized and sharpened for web.



Thanks to everyone for the votes and comments, they are appreciated. Now I'll try to make it through the validating process. First time jitters!!

I'm really not a fan of automated HDR, but this somehow has something to it. I think it's the foreground water. Beautiful. 7
