Thanks! I try to mix up my HDRs a little bit. It was the prefect day for this one for sure. I wasn't able to capture this again. And believe me, I tried!

This is absolutely incredible beyond belief. I wonder, how did you get that unreal image quality through out the entire field? Usually whenever I take a wide angle shot at 18mm, it just looks like it was taken with a digital camera. (i have a canon t2i) please give some tips? im really blown away!

Thanks! Glad you like it! I used a technique called HDR to achieve the look you're talking about. I took 3 images at different exposures. Setting your camera to "A" and using bracketing is the best way to achieve this. Then I use a program called Photomatix to merge the 3 together. Once that's done, I move to Photoshop and layer the Photomatix image, and the 3 exposures on top of each other. And I paint in details using layer masks back into the Photomatix layer. So the PM layer is on top, you give it a layer mask, and then paint in the details from the highest exposure. Merge down when done, rinse and repeat with the other two exposure layers. Once I've done that, I use Topaz Adjust to pop some detail and color. I'll also mask in areas of the original where I think Topaz Adjust was to strong, etc. Top it off with some Vibrance, Levels, and Curves Adjustment Layers and I'm done!

I hope this makes sense. Let me know if you need me to clarify anything.

Thanks! I have a few more HDR images in the works. Hopefully I can get those processed soon! I've been learning from a guy named Trey Ratcliff. You can find his work over at www.stuckincustoms.com
