I really like the processing here. the colors are very rich. I'm not so sure about the composition though. I does not do it for me.

Not too long ago it was bare naked trees and snow on the river. I cant do much about the composition. Its trees and green, water and sky. I live in a dead zone.

To my eyes it looks fuzzy and unclear, like the layers are not lined up correctly, some camera lenses distort images at different f stops so that when photo layers are put together they don't line up and if there is movement in the scene between shots there is another problem with HDR as the layers will not line up and so the outcome becomes fuzzy.

Some photographers also place a weight on the camera as well as use a cable release so that shutter vibration or operator camera movement when the shutter release is pressed, can't jitter the camera and have an affect on the scene position when they are considering layering and HDR, something to be said in the favour of mirror-less cameras.

Topaz plugin that I applied made most of the leaves fuzzy. I should go back and do it again but without Topaz. Its only leaves and water and sky so not very interesting to me, but I thought giving it a canvas look might improve things.

Foliage can be a problem for HDR; the slightest breeze makes leaves unsharp. It's technically very good, but it lacks some kind of element that might make it interesting.

Even when I was there looking at the scene I thought of it more as abstract than interesting. So much variations of green. Oh, I didnt have my tripod and so the shots were hand held.
