    I really like the first one. It exhibits a lot of emotion. Not so crazy about the sky coloration tho. Was that natural or added?

    2. Not interesting at all. I'm skipping it.

    3. Could be good, except the car is distracting. It looks like the image was physically burned a little. If you could exclude the car from the darkness - that would be excellent.

    4. similar to no. 3

    Overall - i feel like its obvious you were "painting" your image. i could be wrong, but it seems as if around the final 2 cars - you were adding effects a little wrecklessly...which might totally be intended, and might totally be my perception..not sure, but its what I see when i look at them.

    I really like #3. I think its a great image for what you intended it to be. Makes the car look really exotic. Its a bit overdone for your "standard" HDR, and I use the word standard very liberally here, but it fits the dangerous fast car look very well.

    In all photo's the sky .. THAT just happened?.As far as the car's looking grainy I tried to get rid of that but didn't work too well.

    1) the sky just ended up like this I could make less of it noticeable.Thanks

    2) This was my "attempt" @ a normal HDR?.

    3) Any tips on how to exclude it from the darkness?.

    4) Read above.

    In all but number 2 I was trying to get the more crazy look.I really enjoy those style pictures I am not trying to do anything 100% perfect but would love to have some insight on my mistakes.Im sure I could take alittle more time and mess around w/the settings but this was a pretty serious attempt.

    Thanks for the post. :thumbup:

    i like the first the best. the vines and windows give the building good character. the wood doors look like they are glowing. good job!

    First and last, just make sure you don't show that middle to anyone, they are far too obvious! Just remember to take a healing tool to "buttmonkey", if you are showing that to your mother.
