Green Pools, William Bay National Park, Western Australia (II) :: HDR :: Vertorama

Gotta do more hdr posting for the time being since most of my trips are pre-filters days :) Thanks for all your feedbacks in the previous post. Seems like many really prefer non hdr shot and also for some reason, quite a num are against hdr processing too... well, some seems to hate it with a passion i would say :)) Anyway I just hope that everyone knows that photography should be a fun thing! & I always believe by keeping an open mind, that’s how one will excel! ;) Have fun & keep learning everyone & i should keep in touch when time permits!
