The Painted Wall
This is the Painted Wall within the Black Canyon as viewed from the Painted Wall View in Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in Colorado. I was there last month, unfortunately in the middle of the afternoon, when the contrast was super high, particularly with most the canyon in shadow and shooting into the sun, as was the case here. Therefore, shot with HDR in mind. This is a HDR image combining four exposures at f/8, ranging from 1/20 to 1/1250 second. I strive to make my HDR images not look over-processed. This one goes up to that line, but I don't think crosses it. What do you think, did I take it too far?

Great vantage point Joe. I think the processing looks about as good as you can ask for with the time of day. An enjoyable image.

hiya Joe,

I like it, nice viewpoint as Bob says; and from my personal point of view, you could have processed it a little more... however, I do like my colours and mood.. so it is just a point of view...

I'm still learning about HDR, and my only program is my Adobe CS5, nothing else, so I'm trying to get all my balances right... unfortunately Canon only allow 3 images across the settings on continual shooting, so I find I set my stops 2 stops apart across the range..

hope to see more
