HD Effect?
Hey guys was just curious if anyone knows how to give your image an HD effect? I searched the web and came across a youtube video:
I tried this method on my newest image I made a couple days ago...and this is the result. (In Order Before and After.)

RE: HD Effect?
The method you found presents very decent results on the sky, but I noticed your planet loses some details (also in the video notice that "guassian blur is used".)

There is a nice GEGL tutorial made by one of our super users on here Smile Check it out, the result there is true HDR (with little shadow and sharper edge/details)
To access your GEGL tools, go to "Tools... > GEGL Operations..."

*Before you try the below method you may want to use the default setting(not change) of the cg2 filter, as it is slow to adjust, but fast to apply.

Here is the result I got(after bottom pic) with the linked method, putting the samples: at 10
(as recommended in an article in the thread I linked you for less noise)

I used a resolution of 1024(bigger will be slower per change/step of settings)
I put your screenname/watermark on the top image it, tilt your screen or look down from the top to see it Smile
