The Still Carrousel

It's been a while since I've taken this shot, and recently, I figured I'd try another pass to see how much my photography and processing skills have improved.  Compare this to my first pass nearly three years ago, and I would say that I've improved.  Both of these are HDR photos, but whereas the old iteration was created from several JPEG's and processed in Photomatix, the version below is three exposures shot in RAW and then manually processed in Photoshop, using masking to paint in and out portions that I wanted or didn't want.  I think the result is a much more evenly balanced portrait, but I'd be eager to know your thoughts!  Just leave a comment!

King Arthur Carrousel, still at night.
