    This is not a photo sire. You have overcooked it with too much PS touchup.

    Its still a photo, an over-cooked photo.

    Kidding. Thanks for the feedbakc, I will re-work on it to see how it goes. Thanks.

    Hi all,

    I have re-tried the PP and here are the first and second version. Please give your comment again.

    I will tell my preference later.

    Thanks.

    #Version 1


    #Version 2: Upon all the ideas and critics, I have re-done the PP, please comment again if it is better or not:

    I think the first PP-ed one was wonderful. Don't change it. The processing outcome has the same effect of Dave Hill's style albeit slightly different. you can take a look at his photos at www.davehillphoto.com


    and this style works here because of the nice setting and the old looking car

    Well done

    two takes from lastboltnut's raw file in photomatix- dude the file you sent me, i don't have nef plugin or what because i don't use photoshop raw or whatever it's called

    so just put it through hdr, somehow the programme cannot recover any of your clouds in the sky

    color


    sepia


    did you give me the correct raw file? maybe send me the jpg too, if possible, possibly the program cannot handle evening out exposure of shadows and highlights during underexposure, based on experience.. so perhaps that's why

    Hi peepeedog, thank you for your compliment....I am far from Dave Hill lah....but to be frank, I am a "contrast" lover and I love his works......may be its the high contrast that many thought the pic was over sharpened.

    Bro, I have a coloured version where I convert my 1st BW from. But I need to further remove the glow on the building like the 2nd BW to improve it. I put all 3 together for easy comparison:

    #Version 1


    #Version 2: Upon all the ideas and critics, I have re-done the PP, please comment again if it is better or not:


    #Colour Version


    Its the correct NEF (nikon raw) that I send you....I have only one NEF on this shot. I will send you the original colour version w/o PP later when I am home.

    Thanks!

    No possible to use Photomatix? Was hoping to see the difference between Photomatix 1 single raw "HDR" vs CS2 PP...
