Hindu Temple at Lake Bratan, Bali, Indonesia
On the norther slopes of Bali is a wonderful setting with the famous temple built on Lake Bratan. This is an HDR image that I simply applied a Sepia filter to using Nik Software Silver Efx Pro.

The shot has a very moody feel to it, and the sepia gives it an old look. I can see why you went with HDR, since the bright clouds look mighty bright. Overall, IMHO, the shot looks a bit "muddy" to me, maybe from lack of contrast (outside of the clouds) or perhaps from being a bit dark. The vignetting may also contribute.

Thanks Joe.   I like putting some images our here that I really want feedback on and this is one as I am not sure what I think myself.   This was a hard image to take because unfortunately we were here near noon and of course everything was very hot and few shadows.  Yes, HDR was the only option, but I thought I would try the sepia.  I am trying to figure out how to place the original here, but cannot yet.  After looking at the original....perhaps you are right on the muddiness.    Thanks!

Richard - great composition and yet another awesome place that I am glad to see thanks to TPN (and in this case you ;-)

When it comes to architectural subjects I usually give most of the credit to the original architect. But in this case you have added your own structural bent with the stark relief on the clouds and surroundings. It really makes for a riveting landscape image that was not natively present just because of this beautiful structure.

And I would never have guessed HDR was in play here - so either you are masterful with tone mapping, or noontime is optimal for that approach! I will have to check out midday HDR, thanks a lot for the field notes.

Lastly I love the vignetting ;-)

 Lovely image, Richard. I just wish it were sharper. I have a set of images that I want to HDR but have no idea where to start. Any tips?
