WOW! Thanks for your gorgeous response! I'm using a Sony a700 with it's kit lens for this one. Your cannon could definitely preform as well or better. It's a HDR, I took 7 exposures at one stop intervals and processed them in photomatix. I'm a big fan of lassoing different areas; in this case the sky, the water, the wharf and the chair; and processing them separately (ie. the contrast, saturation and colour balance)to create a multiple colour temperature effect... the warm chair and the cool sky for eg.

WOW! thats the most detailed response I ever got from anyone and THANK YOU for telling me! I have no idea how to do that though haha I saw your link to youtube.. absolutely amazing stuff!
SO do you edit each section on different layers and mask it off?

No, you could do it with a mask but I'm in the habit of lassoing it to separate them. I can't wait to see what you do...

Still dont get how vibrant you made your images...when I play with my sat/hue/curves/levels it goes wrong in parts and some parts it doesnt. I should be masking it off hey? I must try it to get it! I've taken over 200 shots lately, went down to Sydney Harbour and just around a few places. Will try it with those shots :)

P.S did you just teach yourself? learn from someone? tutorial?

I bet you'd have some nice shots from Sydney, it's such a photogenic city.. well for Australia anyway! ;) I more or less learnt that bit myself so I can't link you up to a tut unfortunately, are you working with HDR's because alot of the unreal vibrancy. I'd suggest you use lasso to break your image into parts, ie, go around the sky with the lasso and then change the settings so they just affect the sky, then lasso the ground and change it's settings and so on... I'll ask my partner if he can do a tut for you and post you a link (he's heaps better at tut's then me, I just spend the whole time saying um, um, well, um... :) ) Good luck, I can't wait to see your Syd shots...

I didn't finish my sentence, I meant to say that alot of the unreal vibrancy comes from being a HDR. There's more information in the file to play with when you change your settings.
