[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a new version of a picture I posted a few months ago. This time I combined three different exposures and created an HDR combination then converted it to black and white using the Channel Mixer. I used one of the new filters in CS3 to change the effect of the black and white.

I have been experimenting with HDR for about two months and have found that for me it works best in darker photographs giving much more detail in the shadows. The effect in lighter photos seems unnatural with halos that give an unrealistic effect.

CS3 has improved the ability to convert to black and white over CS2. They have done a great job on that product.
