    This is not an HDR. I repeat: This is not an HDR. This is a f/7.1, 1/125 s single exposure in Raw. The RAW was processed in Digital Photo Professional (White balace, luminance, saturation etc. were adjusted). Then imported into photomatix and Tone mapped. That tiff was taken to PS and unsharp mask, soft light layer 3% Gaussian blur at 49%, soft light layer at 15% unsaturated and inverted, burn layer at 7%, Curves, Levels, Brightness/Contrast and Hue/Saturation and very modest dodging to the clouds.

    Happy easter!

      This one benefits from the lack of HDR. Well executed, I like it.

      This IS HDR. I repeat, this IS HDR.
      A definition for HDR is that there is high dynamic range in the image. In this image, we have high dynamic range for colors, tones, curves and shadows = HDR image. It doesn't matter wether you created it by a single raw and didn't use HDR software, this still IS an hdr. I repeat, this IS hdr.
