New members latest shot.

This is one of my latest shots. I was hopping to get some feedback.

Re: New members latest shot.

Bowen30D, welcome to RetouchPro. Personally I find it way over the top, unreakistic. It looks more like a scene from a dark video game than a warm grand architecture. Not sure what type of effect you are shooting for but to me it looks like HDR driven off the deep end. HOWEVER, that may just be my taste.
Regards, Murray

Re: New members latest shot.

i would have to agree with mr. monday..... back off from the heavy hdr look a little.... it's becoming too common and tired.... it's interesting but over used....
there is nothing better than a natural looking high quality image... i believe this shot would look good without the heavy illustrated look.

Re: New members latest shot.

I think I agree with earlier posts. HDR is the latest craze, but seems to be that "less is better" needs to be considered. It looks very gothic and could possibly be a heavy metal album cover. If that is what you were going for, then it may be in fact, exactly what you want!
