Another Day, Another Attempt

So a few days ago, I wrote this post.  I included a version of a picture that I had taken of the snow.  I posted this photo:

ISO 100 50mm -0.67 f/7.1 1/80

ISO 100 50mm -0.67 f/7.1 1/80

Today I am posting this one:

ISO 100 50mm -0.67 f/7.1 1/80

ISO 100 50mm -0.67 f/7.1 1/80

They are the same photo but they have been processed in two different ways.  The first I used Aperture and for the second I created an HDR image using Photomatix.  Usually with HDR images you see quite a dramatic photo.  In this case all I was looking to do was create a slightly different way of presenting the needles and the detail in the snow.  Despite being the same photo there are some pretty significant differences in what each expresses I think.  What do you think? Do you have a preference?  Feel free to leave a comment below.

Cheers!
