Mystery Flower #2, HDR Tests

Compared to Mystery  Flower #1, this is a more dramatic HDR treatment with some liberties taken with the tone mapping. The vertical leaf on the far right came out looking almost metallic gold and captures the leathery feel.  I plan to process it again using the restrained HDR processing.

The monochrome treatment here uses a sepia/cyan split tone.  It is hard to see in the JPEG, but the tone range is quite dramatic.
