Neat! I probably would've cropped the right side a little bit, so the side of the mountain isn't suddenly cut off. Other than that, it's a nice shot. I really like the detail in the clouds and the teeny little moon.

I don't know...
I would have turned the camera straight to capture both Pitons in the frame

I actually have that shot in non-HDR form, but for some reason when I was shooting, I didn't think to take three exposures with both orientations.

Here's the non-HDR'd landscape view. The Gros Piton on the left is actually 500 feet taller (I think) than the Petit Piton on the right, it's just a lot farther away.

And an AutoHDR version . The Topaz one seems to have lost a lot of the detail in the sea.

Very cool, guys. I've tried the one-RAW HDR before and it didn't turn out too well, but maybe I just didn't have a very good starting image. I'll have to give this a shot with the RAW file.

I like the comp on #2 much better. Each of the attempts to process it did pretty good.
