I posted this photo over a year ago. I wanted to see how much my editing has changed since then, I processed it again without looking at what I had done the first time, until after I was done. It may be hard to see at this scale, but it's a huge difference. Now I want to go back and redo them all, but that would take months. I also am trying a new method of doing HDRs. If any of you are familiar with luminance masks, that's what I'm doing now instead of combining them in Photomatix and then bringing them into Photoshop. It's a little more tricky, but you can get a much sharper image with a lot less noise, ghosting, halos, and chromatic aberration. I think once I get used to it, it may be faster also.
