I don't honestly know on this sort of thing Jim, I really don't! looks a little unreal to me but! then again it is quite appealing, It really depends if you feel you achieved what you had hoped for! after all it's your photo, I can't help wondering if I might have like the original a bit more, still a good photo!; it's all a matter of taste at the end of the day, I like it would like to see the original as yours are very good photo's, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
a nice try i am sure you will get there

It's all down to taste on some subjects it works and on others not. I think you have got a typical HDR effect and its worked rather well but I prefer my HDR a little more subtle but nice work all the same

v1 definitely has impact. v2 is a beautifully composed image. Both have their merits and I would give a vote to either.

I like strong colours Jim,
but perhaps V1 is a bit strong for me.
Prefer V2 !!

Cracking composition, Jim. Like the HDR version best, but maybe just toned down a little. Grin

I like both with a slight preference for V2. Great work with photomatix on V1.

OK, have to confess straight off I rarely like HDR images. Too many of them do funny things to my eyesight! Much prefer V2 between the images posted here. Is it the original? However, having said all that, well done on trying a new challenge and I look forward to being proved wrong very soon when you totally master this process! Grin

The thing with HDR is to make it look so natural you wouldn't know it was HDR.
I do like V2 your original but it does need that added punch from Highlights and Shadows,
which is what HDR is all about.
I used to have Photomatix on my old computer which was a good programme for HDR
but efforts in Photoshop haven't been too good so far. It does take very subtle handling.
For me the saturation is a little bit overdone but I'm no expert on the subject Jim
but you have brought out more detail in sky.

Two stunning captures. But you have given me a problem Jim, I love v1 even after everything every else has said. I love the vibrancy of the colours, it just hits thar spot, but I also like v2, so they shall have to share the vote for now ... Carol GrinGrinGrin

I prefer v2 but I think I would have pushed it a bit more---but not as far as v1---
Keep in mind that this is not an area that I have done much work--- however I am interested to see what can be done as I am working towards some larger images!

I like both images Jim, V1 for the dramatic impact and the vibrancy of the colours, just the sort of image that should be hanging on the wall of an ultra modern building Smile V2 I like the subtle colours much more restful Smile, great composition,

9 Nov 2012 9:17AM
Very nice image Jim well captured.

it is a beautiful view... my preference would be somewhere halfway in between the two.. 1 is a bit too much, 2 could do with a bit more contrast. It is always good to experiment, that is the best way to learn.

I like the comp. Photomatix is a great programme, but it takes a bit of getting used to and I'm sure you'll find settings you like when you've done a bit of experimenting. The colours, etc, are all a matter of personal choice, but one thing I would do, if I were you, is to bring back a sky from a single image to get rid of the cloud stutter. Send me a pm if you want me to explain.
