Actually that was one of the reasons i took up this challenged, there is allot of good info in your tread. But I am still trying to decide if hdr suits my style of shooting. Thanks a very informative tread.

I am going to change my entry to this one. I first chose the other because of the uncluttered background and more thematic representation, but I like the almost 3-D look of this 70-some year old classic Packard Roadster better, in spite of the more cluttered background. As before, 3 bracketed images processed in HDRtist and PSE6. It looks best on the forum's black "Dark Theme" background ("button" at the bottom of the page).

I just wanted to see what a very processed shot of my entry would look like. From a certain point of view, it's pretty interesting.

Pretty dramatic - I like the way it separates the different layers of clouds. And it almost looks like a volcano is erupting on the right!

BTW, which of your three is your actual entry?

shoturtle, You might try layering the original over the HDR and blend it to darken it with darker or color burn and fade to taste to add the depth and shadows back in. I really like both images and I bet combining the two would be extravagant.

Beautiful composition and all, but like the what you did with clouds. Really nice.

A lot of great looking images this month.
My entry is Nubble Light located in Cape Neddick, ME. It consists of two 5 image (+/- 1EV shots) shots processed in Photomatix and stitched with MS ICE.

Very nicely done, it shows off how great HDR can look, when done appropriately for the scene. The scene cries out for natural and that's what you did - lovely.
