This is the HDR version. I did a one photograph processing in Photomatix. The crop from yesterday's was the result of input from my Critique Group Thursday night.
NIKON D300 1/200 second F/7.1 ISO 400 70 mm
What amazing fog! I personally love fog pictures!

Not bad that this we see better details...
5 Mar 2010 5:25am
A Dreamworld!!! All those new greens, evergreens and lichens are spectacular...and the fog, spectacular.
5 Mar 2010 5:51am
I shall really like living in this place...
5 Mar 2010 6:00am
@Annie Viguié: Not shabby at all :))
Very nice. The colors are more intense. The fog really resonates with that crop. Almost looks like smoke. The car still makes it. (kidding... LA. :) Actually without the cars it would look like an old English manor.
5 Mar 2010 6:01am
You guys and your HDR! my son is getting quite good at this, but that means schlepping a tripod around, and I'm getting VERY old! :)But it sure looks worth the effort. I like this a lot.
5 Mar 2010 6:24am
I like the texture and feel and I am always fascinated by the mix of oaks and then the evergreens - great image Jack!
5 Mar 2010 6:26am
Gran ambiente y composición llena de colores
5 Mar 2010 6:35am
Superbe Jack.... Bonne journée.
5 Mar 2010 6:54am
The tighter crop just tells a different story...puts the emphasis on the building.
My favorite is yesterday's image, but I'm not a fan of HDR so that colors my point of view. :-)
5 Mar 2010 7:17am
This picture is a little clearer, I think it's very nice!
5 Mar 2010 7:21am
excuse me Jack but I prefer without HDR... but love your composition
5 Mar 2010 7:30am
Now this is what I call an HDR!!! You've done it superbly! Beautiful colours. I won't mind living there ;)
I liked the picture yesterday, but the HDR gives a rich texture, great color density and especially a beautiful velvety without affecting the definition! It is superb! I dare not even try! I must learn to manipulate Photomatix, I registered yesterday at the "Nikon
school "in Paris! I hope progress. I like aminus, but I think lack of photographers to give constructive analysis of our images, I do not move anymore!
5 Mar 2010 7:42am
@Mathilde Collot: I stay with Aminus because of the people. And I love viewing the photographs of others. However, I don't think that it is a place to receive constructive criticism.
hmmmm....may be the HDR version is better. But i like both
5 Mar 2010 7:47am
Still beautiful.......... though I feel for yesterdays more:)
5 Mar 2010 8:06am
The HDR one is also beautiful , different ,like a dreamworld !
5 Mar 2010 8:27am
Wow, John4Jack - really really brilliant, I am loss for words :-) The vivid green in contrast to that foggy forest - from fog to clearness - stunning!!! :-)
5 Mar 2010 8:39am
Great and perfect HDR, colors and mist are revealed and enhanced... Of course, I prefer this one... makes me want to walk...
5 Mar 2010 8:43am
Look like a picture post card
5 Mar 2010 8:54am
I see! A very interesting example of the use of HDR famous! One thing I've ever tried and that works fine for me. In this case the master's worked and is a beautiful picture too! Of omentum yesterday I prefer Jack! But keep watching, watching and learning! A hug and many kisses dear friend too! Good weekend! Adela
5 Mar 2010 9:11am
I like and I also make of the HDR. We see better details. You should not too much stress. Great and perfect HDR.
5 Mar 2010 9:25am
Fantastic use of HDR. Yesterday's was a very moody, emotion-heavy image -- today's more vivid, the car really grabs you. I can't say which one I like more because each suits different moods. But really interesting experimentation.
5 Mar 2010 9:37am
Interesting to see, it has certainly made the scene more vivid.
5 Mar 2010 10:00am
I like the texture and light added by the HDR processing.. But I like yesterday's more..:).
5 Mar 2010 10:02am
To be honest I prefer yesterdays shot !! The colours are a little OTT today and the crop takes away all those nice diagonal lines in the foreground !!
5 Mar 2010 10:53am
I like this one
5 Mar 2010 1:55pm
My views are "coloured" too Jack, so you know that I will say I prefer this HDR, for the extra vibrancy and the way it interprets the light and textures. This is far more "alive" than yesterday's.
5 Mar 2010 2:12pm
The HDr has really brought out the colors and detail, I have tried HDR a couple of times but just couldnt get a result I liked, I must try again sometime based on this
5 Mar 2010 2:17pm
I find it difficult to compare the two images because of today's crop. Things appear more vibrant here, but when I look at the grass in yesterday's, it too is a vibrant green, just at a greater distance.
5 Mar 2010 2:25pm
Difficult to choose, they both have a different feel to it.
Today's pic got more details though.....very interesting to compare the two:-)
5 Mar 2010 3:28pm
very nice ,beautiful :)
5 Mar 2010 3:30pm
5 Mar 2010 3:41pm
This is well done, Jack. It doesn't scream HDR to me. So, if I understand correctly, you used a single image to do this?
5 Mar 2010 3:57pm
I like the added brilliance to the colors. The slightly larger view of the house adds too. Well done.
5 Mar 2010 4:27pm
5 Mar 2010 4:57pm
I prefer yesterday's version.
5 Mar 2010 5:32pm
jack you have this image popping, great processing, the fog totally puts a cap on the image and the 40 shades of green are just awesome
5 Mar 2010 5:56pm
Of course this one as a more flattering rendering but the previous one is certainly the nearest of the reality.
Feeling is really different for both of them and i like both (because your HDR effect is not too hard... )
5 Mar 2010 6:14pm
Superbes couleurs !
5 Mar 2010 6:45pm
Nice closer look...
5 Mar 2010 7:26pm
This just sings! I do like the tighter crop, too!
5 Mar 2010 8:33pm
5 Mar 2010 9:16pm
Great shot very well done...
5 Mar 2010 10:41pm
so serene & beautiful :)
6 Mar 2010 1:01am
The HDR processing has done a great job of highlighting the detail seen in the house. It has also helped reveal two other homes that were once "buried" in the landscape. Greater texture is seen in the trees' foliage.
6 Mar 2010 1:39am
Close we get more mysterious this is looking.
6 Mar 2010 2:53am
very beautiful view jack , excellent !
6 Mar 2010 4:36am
wow. i love the color intensity. the trees looks like somebody flocked them. (is that the right word, flock? like you do to christmas trees to make them look like snow fell on them.) your photo almost glows. awesome.
6 Mar 2010 4:53am
I didn't think I would like this shot better than the original, but I do. I like them both. Nicely done, Jack.
6 Mar 2010 4:56am
@LauraS: My hunch is that it is because it is not over the top HDR.
Nicely captures foggy Oregon!
6 Mar 2010 9:03am
Didn't get out here yesterday, but glad i checked today..This shot is awesome.....and I really like the crop you chose......Perfect example of how processing in photomatix can enhance a shot just enough!!!!!
6 Mar 2010 4:40pm
You have a lot more detail here and I like the darker sky but some of the lighter tones are too light for my tastes. Checking your next one --->
8 Mar 2010 2:21am
A wonderful image Jack. Cropping here would have been quite challenging? but you've nailed it!
9 Mar 2010 5:25am
I like both but this one has that extra "punch"! ;)
What a gorgeous place!
9 Mar 2010 5:14pm
I like this one and your very last one in the series..here is the very crisp colors and details..the last one is in the distance and crop both very nice ...lovely work..
