Slowly, Sowly, Colour HDR

Formally revealing my interest in colour HDR and tone-mapping techniques...

Would you like to see more?

I've been experimenting for a while with HDR. Regular followers will know that I started out a couple or so years ago on my b&w work, where it suited the image.

Recently I moved onto using it in the digital darkroom with colour shots, but haven't published much until now, preferring first to play around until I'd mostly mastered it. Well, I don't claim to be there yet, but I feel comfortable enough with the technique to start to publish.

I'm very pleased with the way this one turned out. Would you be able to tell that I used HDR and tone-mapping techniques? If not, then I've succeeded with that aspect, hehe!

On a different note, I believe that I've bumped into a compositional issue with this shot, one where composition and the desire for "pretty colours" are in conflict. I won't say what it is because I don't want to influence you but if you do spot it, I'd love to know (after all, I may just be being paranoid, hehe!).

I'll leave it a few days, and if anyone has commented about it, I'll say what I mean in reply.
