    #1 is the only shot that would stand on it's own, and it was ruined by the HDR.... tone it back a little, it's overdone.

    I love seeing the enthusiasm with people and doing HDR, but they over do it with almost all of their photos and the photos just look horrible IMO. Thats my view though. I don't like blown out photos. Give me enough just to show the details with the dynamic ranges and i'm a happy man.

    Yeah, as photos you've overdone it. But they have taken on a paint quality, which is indeed nice.

    those pics look great to me in an artsy type of way. But I guess thats 'not the way you're supposed to do HDR' by photography standards..

    You overdid it, but everybody overdoes it their first time. So yeah, dial it back.

    I only like HDR when it's trying to capture a broad range of lighting -- basically mimicing our eyes wide dynamic range...

    Otherwise it just looks like visual vomit to me.

    :ugh: it's quite obvious you have no idea what HDR is really intended for.
