    I love early mornings, particularly when the weather's fine, and the outlook is for a beautiful day.

    This was a grab shot, of sorts. It's passed through some editing stages, beginning as a single RAW opened in Photomatix Pro. So some HDR, but only enough to serve the image and the attractive light. After HDR processing, the sky showed some posterization, so I developed a 2nd version using compression only, copied it in under the principal image layer, and painted out the "HDR" sky for a cleaner look.

    Let me know what you think - all comments appreciated.

    Very nice! I love the tabletop.

  3. Nice shot. Love the warm colours and subtle blurred background. Looks very peaceful.

    That's nice. Makes me want to be there. The background shows just the right amount of detail. A really enjoyable photograph.

    Thanks, all. It's a pic I kind of liked, but has been "sitting around" for a few months, unloved. I finally got around to paying some attention to it . . .

    A little editing brought out more of what I liked about it, I think. Sometimes I'm not sure whether I like something more because I've spent the time on it. Human nature.

  7. Wonderful moody shot. BRAVO.
