i would agree that the final rendition is a great HDR and technically superior in every way.

however, i liked the atmosphere evoked by the "overdone" version, sure its not reality, not by a large margin, but it evokes a definate "ominous" emotion. especially if you fix the band of lightened sky just above the mountains and the blueish spot in the mid-tower region.

maybe there is a balance between the overdone and the fixed that could be found too, idk. just some ideas.

been a while since i critiqued anything, so take me with a grain of salt for a bit.

I agree with Hards80. There is a place for both versions. For an artist, often photography is just the first step in the process to the final product. And remember people's opinions are like aholes......everyone has one. You can never please all the people all the time. Most important thing is whether you are satisfied. But then Im a strong supporter of HDR and like it in all its forms. Keep up the good work.

hards80 thanks for your comments and of coarse yourself bynx i always listen to what others say ..... even if someone basically said it was rubbish /[email protected] i dont mind (your comments are positve ) id rather someone be honest with there replys than beat around the bush .... as you guys say hdr is a thing of taste you either like it or you dont i think its great personally ..... even some images that dont look real are what can i say FANTASTIC! but some dislike it as they say it takes the photography away and goes too far .... 90% of images are now edited in some form it is the digital way.....bynx im with you if it looks good who cares .... if it looks crap thank the lord for digital and re-attempt

if i could i would love to learn more about HDR and make it main photo subject and spend more time doing it but i cant LOL

I think these pictures are both beautiful and of course the Lake District in England is simply stunning. Beatrix Potter, etc.

The photos are great, but IMHO the less processing, the better the picture. I'm not a fan of over processing...I feel if you can see it, then it's too much. But that's me.
