          It's an interesting shot, I'm not really a huge fan of HDR shots for a couple reasons, both of which are quite apparent here:
          1) they tend to look flat because there is high contrast in the background
          2) Things tend to glow, like the trees in the upper right and a portion of the horizon

          I'd be interested to see what the best exposure out of the bracket looks like with little to no post work

            I understand what you mean in your second point but as far as the first one i'm still a little confused. I thought more contrast equals more depth to an image. As for the original untouched single shot... I don't think i'll be able to find that at all. Lost most my old images when my external HD Died over a year now.

              HIGH CONTRAST makes things feel closer, things in the background are inherently softer whether your looking through a lens or not. Lower contrast areas fall back into a composition and high contrast components become focal points which makes them feel closer. It's basic visual hierarchy. When you have areas of high contrast in the background it makes the background feel closer, so the image loses depth.

                Well I can't argue against that... I know it makes sense theoretically but it just always seems as if the more I add contrast to an image the more it makes the images, for a Lack of better eords, pop. On paper, the less contrasty, the more dull and dead... The more contrast, the life and vibrance is added... It's very simple... But it's not. I understand what you're saying though. I'm gonna check my HD to see if ai happened to send any of those files across before it cransed.

                  Try reducing the intensity of the road, it has roughly the same contrast and colour palette as the rocks in the foreground do, this is causing the image to feel a bit shallow.

                  I'm confused. This is one of your designs from your original post right? I meant if you could post an image of the logo the client liked, it might help. "They provided me a Logo they want it...

                  Hey thanks for the feedback.

                  I have tried what you're suggesting with shapes rather than lines, but it didn't work for me.

                  That's the challenge, making it looking like CF whilst...
