I can’t resist exaggerating the detail with HDR processing on some these images. Whether or not this works is a matter of personal opinion. I like the story book illustration feel it gives certain images.
Taking photos in a country you’ve never been before really sharpens your vision. Wish I had the money and time to jump on a plane right now and go somewhere interesting – the Painted Desert in S.W. America sounds like an artist’s paradise … Meanwhile, back at the ranch (well the converted dairy anyway) reality bites and it’s time to cook my dinner.
