AZ can you post the unaltered pictures also?
I'm FAR more interested in the un-muxed up ones as your staging and composition is very good - it's just the foolery you do to it is blah.
Actually, the concept of "unaltered" doesn't exist in my world. I shoot RAW, and most of my processing is done in the RAW converter. I could show you what the default settings would do in the raw converter, but I never use default settings, so what's the point. I use no plugins, or other gadgets, except for Photomatix when I do HDRs. I've posted two images recently that are HDR (the last two aren't HDR though). But, I'd have to post all the contributing exposures to them, and again, I don't really see the point. It is what it is. Sorry.
The other thing I should mention is this. The way I shoot compliments my workflow. So even if I shot a JPG in camera, it would look like crap and not be an accurate representation of the scene. What I post is much more accurate than you're used to seeing straight out of a camera. It's not "foolery" at all. A JPG image out of a conventional camera doesn't even come close to capturing what your eye actually sees.
