    I am not good at landscapes, and I have not done much with HDR.

    Like to hear your thoughts.

    Hm.. I like the sky, but the buildings don't seem right to me. I can't put my thumb on it, but I like it over-all. :thumbup:

    I like the sky too. Would framing the tallest building slightly to the right create more balance? Also frame it a little lower (to capture less of the bush)?

    Maybe crop out whatever is sneaking in on the lower right corner.

    Nice shot. I'm probably wrong but, it seems like everything is leaning to the right.

    Only if you look at the left side, the opposite if you look at the right side. Both sides lean to the centre.

    HDR wise it looks good. Most are WAY over done and rarly look right imho. I think you used it for what its was meant for!

    Eh. It looks soft/out of focus mostly, there's too much bland sky and too much foreground bush, the whole thing looks like it has a yellow cast.

    Not your best work.

    I would like to see more foreground and less sky. Maybe if the sky had a nice sunset but it just seems like alot of blue to me.

    Bitter it looks soft to me, almost out of focus. Look at the windows in the buildings. I think the process itself introduced this defect. In fact there is a critical alignment process in the HDR process to overcome this.

    I bet the individual brackets look sharp.

    Now that would be something to take a picture of... The sun setting in the north!

    Not my favorite of yours bitter. But then again I'm not much for daytime city shots. NOW, if it were a shot of Pittsburgh I bet it would look nice... but then again I might be a little bit biased.

    You want to hear our thoughts about what?

    The image or the HDR or what?

    The HDR doesn't seem to work since some of the building parts facing towards the light are pretty hot. Too hot for an HDR.

    But that is only a small problem. The image is boring. To me anyway. Most cityscapes/skyscapes bore me to tear. Sorry.
