I snapped a pic of the morning sky kinda testing the dynamic range of my SD14. The photo it's self isn't a keeper in my books, and never will be no mater what. However I'm still wondering if I've over processed it a little too much.

What do you think?

Just so you know, it's my back yard which I occasionally use as a test site.

Here's the original

Don't have much time to comment today. I'd say you overprocessed it a bit. Somewhere between the two would be better to my eye. You've brought up the foreground but lost contrast. This shot would have been better with a ND gradient filter to reduce the sky a bit. And yes, I always forget to use mine in exactly the same situation.

Thank you very much,
I was sorta using it as a test for my old series 1 vivitar, seeing what sort of flair is has and what characteristics it exhibits while shooting into the sun.
It honestly didn't do too bad, considering the conditions. I have some much newer lenses that would be practically useless with ugly flair.

This is a very difficult subject to get right in one shot. An ND gradient filter will help but for this type of shot, I might have gone with and HDR approach. That would have gotten the best of the foreground and sky.

I think one thing nice is that your PP work enhanced the sunstar.
