Shortly before Formigal in Catalonia. These are the Pyrenees in August 2006. Below is the HDR version, see this picture as posted in the gallery (click here!) , where you can roll your mouse to see the original and the effects on the same picture. It's fun!

  7. Hi Mar! What beautiful photos!! I'm glad you used BLUE today...it's a perfect color since the Americans that are Democrats are 'blue' instead of the Republicans who are 'red'. LOLOLOL

  12. Call me purist, but I love the original version more. Sometimes, it can get pretty artificial when hdr is employed.

    Happy halloween.

  25. The HDR is good but the original is better but seeing those mountains is the best of course :) Is this the place for the F1 races?
