Not only does its deepen the colors's glow, but giving such texture to things - just look at the ocean-floor (or whatever you call it) with all the details in the sand / silt / mud or whatever it is, in the foreground, .

They are very good, both of them.

Very good catch, Walter C!
Thanks, Walter. HDR is tricky with fast-moving waves moving in.

I'm very new to the Digi SLR game so please forgive my ignorense, but I'm curious how you do the HDR with the setting sun. if it's a 5 picture process, how can you make the setting changes so fast as to not have the sun and water in different positions and still have them come out so clear and perfectly in focus? Once again I think I'm a little cunfused to the whole HDR process.

What made these 2 shots work was the fact that the ocean was relatively calm, especially in the foreground. So, I didn't have a lot of movement between shots to contend with. I did have to work fast to change the settings before a wave got closer and before the sun moved significantly.
