I would sell the occasional shot outside of dA, i dont really agree with dA's rates to the artists for selling their work.

Well the processing is quite a lot on this image. To start its a very low hdr from 3 raw's with 2 stops between them, about 10-20% on the strength slider within photomatix.

Then in photoshop i used local contrast enhancement (unsharp mask 35%, 60px, 0) then a bit of editing of the saturation to enhance the sunset colours slightly.

There is a great stigma attached to hdr work, a lot of people expect hdr's to be vastly overprocessed things. I know a lot of people wont even consider if they like a photo if they know it has been processed as a hdr which is madness. Its not like HDR work wasnt possible in the darkroom, ansell adams was a master at it, it was just a lot harder than it currently is.

I didnt label it as HDR because I want people to judge the photo as a photo not on how i processed it, imo the processing technique used should be irrelevant to if the person likes the shot or not. I used hdr to get the sky and landscape in the dynamic range of the sensor, I could of blended several exposures by layering them and selectively deleting in photoshop or i could of bought myself a set of graduating nd filters to darken the sky. I dont think it should matter what method you used to get to picture.

i am totally with you on that one. I try HDR sometimes but i still get a highly unrealistic weird stuff, you`ve seen it in some recent deviations in my gallery i guess. Unlike you that achieve this awesome results.

I was afraid to ask cause sometimes people don`t like to share their secrets on post processing, that`s all. And i just want to learn.
