    Here's the second part of my trip.

    I though that I would do this one HDR and regular (with my own edit) to see which you like best.

    1. HDR (click for larger)

    2. My own edit (click for larger)

    I'll have more once I get them all edited probably some time tomorrow.

    3. Just goofing around with photomatix

    Your own edit is much nicer, IMHO. Sharper and more detail in the clouds as well as a brighter foreground. And this is the most spectacular view too, compared to the ones posted in part I. I can see what drew you to it.

    Your edit makes it looks alot warmer and softer.
    The HDR makes it abit more dramatic and more storm like.

    So depends which your after :)

    I'm guessing the HDR was handheld as there alot of movement.

    I like the clouds in the HDR, but the forground in your edit. Perhaps you can brighten the forground a bit in the HDR for the best of both?

    Like the shots. The HDR composites show drama, but look a little surreal (which may be what you were going for). What did the pre-HDR shots look like?

    Thanks guys. I think I like my edit (not to brag), but the HDR is just not quite capturing what I was getting at. Thanks for the opinions. It's all of your opinions that have shaped my photography, and for that I'm very greatful.

    Here's another one from that day.

    That last one is the best by far...take that puppy to MPix and have it printed big on Kodak Metallic.
