I'm really happy with the way this one turned out.
Took a couple of others, but I didn't find them quite as impressive. Here they are:
Couldn't decide between B&W or Color:

Quite a bit of ghosting in the first image. Was it windy?

it was very windy.... I decided to not remove the ghosting to give it a painted feel to the image and the appearance of motion. I tried it de-ghosting, but didn't like the results..There is one spot I wish I would've removed the ghosting, right in the middle of the sky, other than that, glad I left it alone.
i also did some addition PP'ing on the tiff of #1. Here it is:

I agree with you on the ghosting... It would look much cleaner if it was removed on that one overhanging branch in the middle of the sky.
Other than that, it's an AWESOME looking shot!
It looks like an great spot, in general. Your image does it justice :)

Thanks Mike. I'm considering doing some fishing and photography there tomorrow as well.. I have a building in mind that would be perfect for the HDR treatment.

I would crop right below that branch, it would also make the bridge the center of attention.

The B&W conversion is interesting, but I think it shows one of the problem that we, as photographers, can have in doing these kinds of conversion - you are not alone, I run into it all the time. There is not enough range of contrast in the original colour image to provide the range of contrast that you need for a "successful" conversion, so in this case, I like the colour better. I am curious...did you convert the original colour image, or the colour HDR image. Regardless, I would be curious to know what process/software you used for the conversion. Thanks.

They are nice. All the images could you an increase in contrast and brightness and decrease the color saturation just a bit. They look a bit flat.

Thank you, when I do that i will repost them for ya to check out. I wish i images looked the same on here like they look before I upload them to photobucket. For some reason it screws the colors all up
