The view from Blackdown in Haslmere yesterday afternoon. This is the first time I've used the 'Photomatix High Dynamic Range' software I was given for Christmas.

I had real problems with dust showing in the sky originally which is really annoying as I'm not very good at re-touching images.

Please feel free to critique this as much as you like!

Superb shot . Should be a smoothness slider etc to soften the sky

Great view - you've caught the sun without it totally burning out - was that down to the new software?

The unedited versions don't look too bad - half and half I think!

If I could offer critique here I would, but it's so good I can't! I have used the Photomatix software you mentioned, but found it a bit too OTT. That said, you've used it superbly here as I think subtle is the key word when it comes to using HDR. I love the composition and lighting here, but if I had to offer critique, I would maybe suggest upping the saturation a fraction, if anything. That said, I do tend to go a bit OTT with saturation myself, so maybe it doesn't need it!
