Hi John and thanks for posting this beautiful image. My only knock of the image is the amount of Noise in the sky. I downloaded your image here and ran it thru Topaz Studio / A.I. Clear and with only Two clicks of the mouse sharpened the image and removed all noise from the sky. Please give it a try if you do not already own it. Free Trial....Copy and Paste......

@digicam Thank you !!

The problem of noise is in this case due to single image processing of a LDR shoot with an HDR software Increase the micro contrast means more noise

@philta22 , You're exactly right Phil about the single Image processing due to Noise. However in this case if John runs this image processed with Noise as seen here thru Topaz A.I. Clear and says it is a 3,5,7,or 9 Exposure Image you or no one else would know the difference that it is only a Single Image Capture.. It is JUST THAT GOOD.

I never said that the picture was not good I talk about technical stuff nothing else! But maybe it would be good just to think about what means HDR and this Website claims to be anHFR site just think about it...,

@philta22 , If you're speaking Purely Technical then once again I agree. TRUE HDR is composed on Multiple Exposures. With that being said I do believe there is also room for Single image post to be considered as Faux HDR images on this site as I have seen some that look Better and could past for multiple exposures than some multiple exposure post that are Over saturated, Over processed, Blown out ,.... etc. It is NOT a Perfect World. I do not think you will ever find an HDR site that post strictly Multiple Exposure HDR's. If you do LET me know. Let's Agree to Disagree.....LOL. Have A Great Day!
