Brenton H. Woodruff March 14, 2009

Hey beautiful picture. Is this an HDR image?

Sam Gray March 14, 2009

Thanks for all the comments...
Brenton, this is a single shot but I did process the raw file as a pseudo HDR in Photomatix and then blend it with a regular processed image in CS3. #7285820

Brenton H. Woodruff March 14, 2009

Oh Okay cool. I've been playing around with HDR lately, thats really the only reason why it would catch my attention. Nice job. #7285839
