Virtual Photo Challenge: Post-Processing Art

My camera has an "HDR Painting" setting. Superfluous option IMHO but something to play with. :D A reflection pic I shot in downtown Vancouver, BTW

    Nice HDR, not overdone like so many of'm are! However, it's a tad oversaturated but for this particular pic that works so that's not really a point against it. I bet you did it on purpose. Gives it a sort of painterly effect. I assume that's what you were aiming for?

    Thank you Christine and Candy. And yes, Werner, I did do it on purpose. When I was resizing in PS, I *may* have bumped the vibrance up a bit... XD

    Great job ! Love the textures in the reflection. I guess with an HDR setting in your camera, you don't have to purchase photomatix or other software to get HDR images. A bonus/cost saver ?

    The settings are in my camera, Gail, but I rarely use them, preferring to to have a base photo to work on in Photoshop - I'm just experimenting with them for this MeetUp challenge. There are 7 other settings it comes with so I will give them a try over the coming weeks.

    A really impressive photo! It would be nice if you could set the camera to take one shot with the HDR setting and a second without it. Something to suggest to camera makers -- the programming would be quite easy.

    I always take a clean shot of my subjects, David. InCamera effects are fine and all but they limit you when you get home. :) Of course what I took was not exactly the same as the picture you see 'cause I did it manually.
