HDR experiment with HDR Efex Pro.
At a time when the streets are deserted ... into the village in My Normandy.

Honestly, I do not know what I'm doing other than that playing with the sliders and get a result that appeals to me.

This result looks like a pencil drawing. I have therefore concluded that the HDR experiment was over. Simple as that.

Hi Daisy,
An excellent subject for B&W HDR as it brings out the textures of the stonework, you have done a great job here and as a fan of HDR I hope your experiment isn't over

Hi Daisy,
It sure is the perfect setting for an HDR experiment and especially with such fantastic results as this. The deserted yet detailed street leads one into the sleeping, interesting and beautiful setting of the village. I like this one and also wondering what time you did the photos.

Hi Daisy,

Nice experimental photograph. Thanks for NOTE which always novice to learn. Very nice details and interplay of light and shade. Luke it...
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Daisy

It's so easy to overdo HDR treatment and I see many examples of that. It can make the scene look so unrealistic. But when it is done well it enhances the photo beautifully. And this has been done well, very well in fact.
Love this scene, it has great depth and that lane leads the viewer deep into the scene. Love the tones and textures. If anything, I would remove the aerials.

Great shot. If I could I'd give three points.

I do not often complement B&W images. It could be with my lack of vision or understanding and depth of photography. On this one I agree that it is just perfect as the other members mentioned. Beautiful.

The HDR experiment worked well and the winding street leading into the image, as well as the buildings on the sides, prevents one's eye from straying. A pleasant exercise in visual exploration. Well done.

Hi Daisy, keep on playing. With results like this on your first go you will have lots of fun..Definitely not overdone and you have brought out a lot of detail in the bricks.Fiona

Photographie très belle, soit en termes de cadrage que de sujet .La conversion en noir et blanc augmente l'intérêt dans le sujet. La transformation en HDR donne à la photo une particulière atmosphere de rêve.

Ciao Daisy, fascinating B&W, great PP work, excellent perspective, fine details and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Daisy,
Really nice picture lots of detail in the shot, HDR is not something I know much about, but this is well suited to the subject.
Perhaps I would have liked slightly more contrast but that's my personal taste
