    Could you please be a little more specific? It's okay if it's not your style but what's the point in commenting if you are not prepared to contribute any constructive thoughts?

    Also, I didn't realise there were specific "scenes" that were and were not allowed be used for HDR images :er:

    Bevin, that's a beautiful landscape! Although I'm not a big HDR fan, I like the natural HDR look you gave to it. Too bad I don't have views like that where I live ;)
    Do you mind sharing the data?

    Great shot. The only thing that bothers me is the darkening in the upper corners and around the big cloud. And remember a real HDR is the one you can't tell it was edited, unless that's what you want.

    I think what he means by this is that the scene does not really have a huge range of tones requiring HDR processing (though the shadows on the mountain/hill perhaps say otherwise).

    Regardless, I like the outcome.

    i think this scene is great for HDR. there might not be alot of colors, but having a high dynamic range makes it look alot better than a single exposure would.
    and i think you did a great job on not over doing it.

    I also like the shot. it'd be nicer if it wasn't dark around the cloud and in the corners but the colors and composition do it for me. Especially for your first, I'm still trying to get a hang of it.

    That is. . .incredibly absurd. Folks please endeavor to understand what it is your are critiquing, BEFORE you start critiquing.

    To the OP, excellent capture. I'd like to know the process that produced such a rich scene free from the evils of HDR'd noise.

    I agree.

    1) I agree. It doesn't appear to have a high dynamic range (the scene).

    If I'm missing something, perhaps you could explain it to me.

    I was only interpreting someone else's response to the image. I don't think I offered any critique...
