    The coloring ruins the pics.

    Also, the lake is not level in photo #2.

    Yes I tend to agree with Plato - the second one would be great if the horizon was level and a little elss saturation.

    i think there is to much saturation, the colors kind of turn me off

    I have to agree. While I love saturated color, it's a little too strong here. It's really visible in the clouds where the saturation has created stark changes in color rather than subtle transitions.

    And the second one has writing all over it. :p

    Lol yeah, I don't want to buy Photomatix until I am really comfortable with HDR and can make it worth it and at this point I think I am going to stop with the HDR until I can really get a handle on the rest of the mechanics on photography. HDR just hasn't been working out and it takes up too much time! Lol.

    Although when I am using Photomatix, the colors don't look over processed or saturated when I am tone mapping, the photo that comes out after processing is so different...

    I desaturated the second a little bit, is that better?

    It doesn't look different from the photo above because I edited in photobucket, just replaced the original, so that is gone now.

    How do you want me to straighten the horizon? That is straight. Those trees in the background are further back and curved around, it's not a straight on lake or anything. The building is level if you look at it
