Wow, a new PB! Thanks for the comments all...I promise not to submit a photo of the Houses of Parliament again, even if it is the only subject I can ribbon with!

This is pretty much the same shot as Ten O'Clock, just a little wider and in monochrome this time. I used Channel Mixer on selective areas to get a different tone for each (water, sky, building, bridge) and help even it out. Also 5 exposures (-2, -1, 0 +1, +2) rather than my usual 3.

Wow... only 3rd. Robbed I say... this is the perfect example of what can be achieved with HDR, IMHO. Congratulations on the yellow.

The tones on this are just perfect. I love the texture of the reflection in the water. The HDR is definitely not overdone in this one. The blue hue is a nice touch too. My top pick in the challenge.

Beautiful. I don't think I have seen this shot from this angle before. Wish I had found this point of view when I was there last year. Very pretty.

stunning. this looks so good! great choice of monochrome processing. did you try rotating the image a bit to level the palace?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

There are a few halos, but I still like this image. A classic and well known view but from a different perspective and with beautiful tones.

OMG I LOVE IT

I REALLY love this image. Excellent use of HDR. Love the colour. Originally gave it a 9 during my voting phase, but I'm bumping it to double figures... you've got the blue ribbon in the bag with this.

11/21/2011 08:23:06 PM
Really like this image...very different in the way its been processed with the single-toning. Definitely provides a refreshing change from the over-saturate kaleidoscope of color I've been seeing!

The blue hue accentuates the detail in this image IMO. Very nice image.
