Disney - Cinderella Castle and Pretty Sky - HDR (Edit 2) (Explored)

I know what you're thinking - I've already posted this picture, right? Abby Lanes suggested she'd like to see it in HDR (tone mapped) which I've done here. Obviously it has more pop, but does it look over done to you? What do you all think? Posted in the comments below is the originally uploaded photo...

  • DMull 7y

    great work joe the hdr pops the castle more and the red light draws interest towards it.... either i like both the final decision is yours as the creative master but either way,super capture to begin with...
  • Kevin Cantor 7y

    When I look at this, I picture the two little fairies in Beauty and the Beast (I think that was the one), aiming their wands and fighting back and forth: "Pink!" "Blue!" "Pink!" "Blue!" LOL Congrats on Explore!

    I like em both. Whereas the original has a nice natural punch, the processed has a nearly bioluminescent quality...which is appealing.

    Congrats on making it to Flickr Explore btw!

  • PfeifferPhotos 7y

    Now it looks like a painting more than a photograph. Very pretty in both versions!
  • Samantha-Louise Wass 7y

    I like the castle and foreground in the 2nd picture and the sky in the 1st.
  • Eat My Disney Dust 6y

    I really like it - I don't think it's overdone, I just love the colours and think they help the Castle to 'pop'!
