Nice set Barbarian. Have you considered going HDR on shots like these?

I try to make my HDRs look like they aren't HDRs. I only use HDR to increase tonal range.

These are HDRs, just very mild ones.



This one better?

I thought they were HDR shots.

(Err, no, it looks worse.)

Yes, I noticed you use a very light touch on your HDRs, too. I was writing to Bynx.

I do think one can sometimes get a good image with extreme HDR, but I don't seem to be able to do that. Mine look better with a more natural look.

I knew you were writing to Bynx, because otherwise you are psychic and replied to my post in advance...

Just my opinion, but your natural scenes, well, they look natural.

If you want to make Art, you can use HDR in extreme mode - If you want to capture what you saw, I would say you're doing ok...
