What a lovely image, did you use the K-7 HDR function?

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Beautiful image! Without the fence it could be a scene from some fairy tale.

Funny you should mentioned that Tim, I had been thinking about what it would look like without it, however on reflection (excuse the pun) I think it would lose some character (IMHO).

A most striking shot. Amazing colours. Not sure about the fence. I think I'd want to walk about a bit and try some different angles, foregrounds etc. But by then the rainbow would have melted away...story of my life really!

This is wonderfull, can you straighten the horizon? I think it would improve an already great shot.
K7,K10d,16-50 Da*,50-135 Da*. Looking for a good macro.

Lovely, but needs straightening
Looks a bit HDRish but the only HDRs I've seen from the K7 are really flat, unlike this image.
Has anyone got any good examples of K7 HDR? Love to see some.

Hi All thanks for all comments,my eyes are not too good and to me the Image does look straight, I do have a problem getting my horizons right. No I did not use the Hdr that is in the camera, this was taken on my first afternoon out with the camera, so I was getting feel of my new toy. Regarding the fence in the shot, there is a lot of water both sides of the fence so was unable to get a shot with out it in; unless I had put on a pair of wadders!! I was so lucky to be there when the rainbow came out, and I got a couple of good shots as well. This is a one shot Image put through Ps-3 and then finshed off in photomatix to get my Hdr.

Use the reflections Anthony - drag the side of the window (here, or in Photoshop) across the image until it lines up with a pointy object and check that the reflection is directly below it.
