    Man.

    Some of the processing on those makes my head want to explode!

    What did you do to make the photographs have that extra more vibrant effect? They're beautiful photos.

    I love HDR and hypersaturation, but that's a bit much.

    Thanks... for all the comments. I am happy all of you enjoyed them.

    It takes a lot of work to make even a junkyard look good!

    All images were 3 exposures.. processed in Photomatix Pro, then tweaked with
    Topaz Detail....

    I like the Wildflower Rover photo.

    As for the effects... well...

    I guess the way to put it: if you look at a photo and consciously think "effect"... then it's way too much effect.

    Boy, you guys need to "get out more often" and look at more HDR... these are actually mild. I don't care for the grunge effect which is what I think you are referring to... :D

    Thanks for looking!

    The details in the pictures look stunning. Nice HDRs but like others said, toning it down a little bit would preserve the details but make them look more realistic.

    Unless you're going for this look. But overall, it's quite a nice look. Not something I stare at for a while though haha

    Don't take it personally- I think the photography itself looks nice.

    As for HDR- someone said it pretty well once on Flickr, where every other person with a camera eventually tries their hand at HDR photos, with obvious mixed results:

    "Good HDR is not immediately apparent HDR, bad HDR is over done tone mapping and excruciatingly and obviously bad."

    Yup. ;)

    No it's not. Perhaps you need to look at more HDR.


    These HDR photos are an absolute eyesore, but if they were just normal photos, they'd probably look quite good.

    Mild?

    When you eat hot wings...is NUCLEAR: mild to you? :D

    Overdone HDR always reminds me of:

    I did a similar collection when I was in my senior year of high school taking AP 2D. Basically had an assortment of images ranging from toilets, to trash dumps, to run down buildings. Did similar effects-- most people really enjoyed the collection even though it's actual imagery was centered around things that people would not consider art.

    Way over the top. Kinda looks like a comic book.
