    very boring day, very cloudy day.
    So I took two exposures of Osaka castle, made an HDR and this is the result.
    Is it over done a bit?

    Thanks for the comments. I new to PP, and my first HDR`s were terrible.
    Your comments gave me a bit of drive and so I printed it out. The print looks less like a HDR and more like a B&W. and I`m wrapped with the print, so much so It`s going up on the wall at work.

    cheers.

    I really do prefer b&w hdr to normal. The only think I'd suggest is to add some structure/texture to the sky (easly don't with Nik, if you have it)

    Yeah, I not sure how, I`m only new at PP. since getting my camera
    I`ve been mostly concentrating on getting ok shots. only just started playing around with PS. Do you mean to give the sky a more dramtic look? I might do it again and see if I can do something with the sky.

    I aggree with you of the few HDR I`ve done the b&w ones look the best.
    So far this is the only one I`m going to hang on to though.

    Very nice

    The soft glow effect works very well with this subject, as does the mono conversion, thanks for posting.

    I like it a lot, the glow actually adds to the picture. This must be one of the very few HDR pictures that I actually like, mostly I don't care for HDR at all and I never do it myself.
