    Wisdom ... can be found in a garden ... in the street ... in a beard full of white hairs ...
    in that heart that's hiding under the dusty uniform ... in that head that's covered to protect it's wisdom ...

    HDR from a single RAW ...

      Khaled , i understand that it is difficult to say good-bye to one's lifetime hobby and there is no arguing that.

      but for me, photoshop has increased my commitment to photography (amateur that is he he)

      guyha has a point, too.

      If I can add to this thread, I've been using a film carmera up till just last month and finally bought a decent digital SLR. For the last 2 or 3 years I ended up having all the negatives scanned anyway just so I could tweak them in applications like Photoshop. The results have been dramatic. I think you see a lot of comic book results with HDR because it is new. 5 years from now people will tire of that kind of look.

      HDR, Orton, etc are all options. I think everyone should experiment with new technologies to try them out. If you like the look great, if not, move on. The key is to keep your options open.

      One final word, HDR in applications like Photomatix is all about control. There are several sider bars. Nobody has to push that stupid thing all the way to the right to 100%. That's probably just inexperience or lack of self control. Time will tell...

      By the way, I almost forgot, great photograph, through whatever processes you arrived at the result.

      davidlepnyc sure it's an addition to the thread ... I don't hate the old stuff like film or so ... I started with a Yashica film camera ... I was shooting whatever ... but it seems like I'm more into digital art ...

      I also got so many fine art to look at, but we can not let somebody who hates the technology say Yuck in front of all the tech fans ! that's not democracy at all :D

      by the way I don't mind anybody saying whatever in his mind, coz I know we r all artists in here and that's a positive sign to discuss all of these things in public ... that's what I lack in here !

      thanx davidlepnyc ... thank u very much for the precious comment :)

      i think you overuse HDR, but they are interesting, jsut maybe you should think about not useing so much HDR?

      Well, in my humble opinion, This pic works well in the HDR used. It accents the harshness of his life, and makes a more poignant statement. But that's me! Judi in S.M.,Ca.

      beautiful portrait...great tone...

      It's amazing works on HDR used... especially because you used 1 single RAW... coz It's hard for me to make something like this...it always makes a lot of noise... :P
