I did now and thanks. And I know what you mean, I'm not a fan of the overdone HDR. It took some time to make sure I didn't over bake it.HDR wouldn't have such a bad connotation to it if all HDR looked as good as this one Joe! This one looks great, that road is super and the sky compliments it nicely.
I hadn't noticed, had you entered this into The Recipe Contest? This would be a perfect one to do so.
