The old one's clouds are washed out. That is not a perfect HDR. Not losing detail
is HDR processing for.
Hard to reprocess an image and make it look a LOT better when you already have a Great image to start with, but I do see the reprocessed image is slightly Sharper and Cleaner. Looks like a Winner to me Fred. Best of Luck in the Contest.
Yes, definitely looks sharper Fred. Wonderful shot.
Teh reprocessed image is too dark for me
Congrats on POTD Fred.
Congratulations Fred on your 2nd Place Finish in the SPRING CONTEST. Well Deserved.
