This is the entrance to the garden at the Henry Clay estate in Lexington. It's a beautiful place!

I like your subject--beautiful! The sky is moody but a crop off the top might give the center more weight.

The blown-out areas above the trees become distracting. I'm assuming this is from the HDR processing. This is a very contrasty scene and deserves HDR, but maybe waiting for the sun to hide behind clouds--if possible--might have resulted in less exposures and less processing.

Thanks, FanBoy. Cropping some off the top seems like a good idea. Yeah, I had to get this set of exposures pretty quickly - people were walking around, in and out. Tough situation to shoot for HDR!
