    So this in kind of my first attempt to make an hdr image. I know its not the typical hdr look but i didn't have photomatix to make it look really cool. just kind of messing around what do you think

    to be honest i dont really like it because it seems that mountains are just blocking my view to the vast expanse beyond them. and to my eye the image seems to be a bit congested. nice looking exposure, colour and shaprness wise, but as an image i wouldnt say its fantasic. but just my opinion and what i see

    I think it's a good composition, but I think it would be better to simply wait for the right light (ie.: sunrise or sunset) instead of fooling with curves. The right angled lighting would make for some amazing shadows from those rock formations.

    I see where you guys are coming from with this. It does seems like the mountains are in the way, i wasn't going so much for composition but really just the hdr technique. I think the hdr would only benefit then with a better scene huh?
