    This picture was taken from inside my car because it was raining and the tripod wasonly on one leg so the images might not have been perfectly aligned. This picture is of a new gas wellby my house in Texas. Sorry about the watermark but I really didn't want to spend $99 just to try it out. C&C welcome

    You should straighten the horizon. The key elements of the photo are pretty flat in texture and contrast (sky, foreground, trees). In viewing it larger, the trees also have something odd going on in them (similar to artifacting). Also, this looks as if it could be done with a single exposure, you should post up your bracketed shots for us to see.

    not a horrible job, but u should straighten the horizon and removing the haloing around the trees. the best way to remove haloing it raise the luminance in photomatix.

    www.stuckincustoms.com has a VERY good HDR tutorial for Photomatix. I've used it for my stuff and mine have come out very well.
