    Hi David Still catching up with your videos. I have owned this programme for a while but never used it, not least because i am not a big fan of HDR.
    You have shown a very light handed approach to it though and have undoubtedly brought out the best in this image. You wouldn’t guess you had used an HDR programme to get there.
    All very sweet. I shall have a play now!
