I like the sunny patches of vigorous greens and reds very much. The sky is a tad to blue for my tastes. But seen as a whole, this hyper-realistic photo is awesome. Nice application of the HDR technique I must say .
Hmm, the blue frame might be too strong - I generally take the frame colour from one of the major colours in the shot - white can be boring sometimes. But I guess there are some risks with that. Thanks!
Hmm... I'm liking this one, but you still need to post the less-edited one And I know what you mean about how popular the overly-edited photos are on here, but I think this shot still doesn't look too different from what you'd actually see in real life, aside from the darkness of the sky
Yeah I still tried to do this tastefully... It is proving to be quite popular, so I guess people like deep colours and strong contrasts. Nothing wrong with that, but I'll post another shot with less editing (not the same one, but quite similar anyway) tomorrow morning, I think.
