Definitely like this one.

You should probably consider practicing things like composition and subject matter before murdering every bland photo with over-saturation and over-sharpened HDR awfulness. Marin's advice on exposure blending is spot-on, but you can't just make a terrible photo good by slapping 3 exposures together, ramping up all the sliders and posting it to the internet.

I suggest you read this thread and take the information within to heart.

Since sub opened the gates for HDR bashing, I'm all up for it. You gain nothing with these shots, just expose well and you'll do much more.

I'm not bashing it, I just think it's ridiculously overused and seen by amateurs as some kind of magical way to make their images appear interesting. It can be used delicately, or by using exposure blending (ala Marin's advice) to make a good shot better, but it's not making terribad photos any more pleasing to look at.

These images remind me of Just Cause for some reason.

So you're saying all the photos I took are terrible? hmm...well Idk I had a lot of people PM about full size res for wallpaper usage...I agree with over saturation and over toning in general, those were done on purpose for the surreal look. But this last one of the Temple I thought was pretty nice overall, the sky came out great with the 3 exposures blended.

This shot was taken with a T2i($540 refurb), and the kit lens 18-55mm (18mm focal length 1/60,1/250,1/1000 shutter, 3.5F stop)

Google exposure triangle, read up. And big deal, people want your pictures as backgrounds. Oh no, I'm being too harsh. If you want the BEST photo critique, go to /p/. Nobody holds back.
