Photographer's Comments
This shot was actually taken on April 19, 2009, but the processing was done on April 20, 2009. Technically this is for Day 109, but I am labeling it as Day 120 because the processing was done on April 20, 2009. My maiden attempt at creating a High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging. This HDR image was done using a single file conversion. I used Photomatix to do generate the HDR image and do the necessary tone mapping and HDR rendition. I then used Photoshop Elements to adjust the colours and contrast. I am quite happy with the final output from this image. Comments on how to improve this photo, composition wise or post processing is highly appreciated.

I haven't tried creating a HDR iamge with only one RAW file. What i did was, i took 9 different exposures.

I think this picture is a little too overdone in HDR. There are no shadows, and the highlights look too fake. Overall, everything jumps out too much till there's too many elements to detract you from the main scene of the waterfall. I suggest toning down the brightness of the surrounding area and increasing the shadows in the foreground to bring out the center waterfall.
