Photographer's Comments
It has been more than a week since my last update. Sorry for the inconsistency in updating, but I got tied down with some work. Anyway I am back with my latest photo. For this photo, I did 2 post processing. First I created a High Dynamic Range (HDR) image using Photomatix Pro. This image is actually a combination of 3 separate exposure. I shot at -1 eV, 0 eV and +1 eV. I then used Photomatix Pro to align the photo and create a HDR image. I then did some tone mapping to enhance the photo a bit. Then I used Photoshop Elements to do some minor adjustment to the saturation and contrast of the photo. This is my first attempt at creating a HDR image. Comments on how to improve this photo, composition wise or post processing is highly appreciated.

Wow. Looks like you're experimenting new styles and techniques with this one. Honestly, I barely understood your caption except the fact that the photo is a combi of photos in 3 exposure levels. The results are interesting yet less alive. Sorry Sharma but I wish the shell would stand out more. But great attempt though.

HDR is very tough. However, you should try capturing with exposures like -3, 0 and 3 instead of -1, 0 and 1. That gives a better colour difference.
