I'm back from Virginia, where I just finished teaching a weekend course in creative digital techniques with Deborah Sandidge. This image combines several techniques, including HDR, Color Efex Pro 4, and Photoshop. The take-home message of this class was that you need to look at your software tools holistically. Use each plug-in for its strengths, and defer to others to finish the job. By combining all your tools into a comprehensive kit, you'll end up with better results.
