Very nice. I think I like the first better. Maybe for the colors.

Thanks all for the comments, #1 is my favorite also, matter of fact I used it as wall paper on my computer. I like 2 for it's overall farm feel, but for some reason it just doesn't have the POP I was looking for, I may just go back to the original and do a little different processing on it.

If you have the option, maybe crop out some of the green, bring the old building in closer to the front?

Good Idea, every time Look at it, I think it just looks to monotone and there is just to much green.

I have thought for quite some time that greens don't take to HDR well, and as soon as I say it out loud, someone comes along and does it. Maybe I mean green grass, cause green metal looks great, but green grass and weeds just seem to lack something.

I think you're right on that. Maybe because grass has to many varitions of greens everything from a yellow green to a dark green.

That may be it, the constant changing of tonal values. You can see it where dark meets light, like a tree against the sky, it causes a halo. And shadows cause mottled light and dark areas in the wrong places. So maybe grass just does it on a smaller scale and just doesn't come out looking right.

I think #1 is the best. And the clouds are so amazing. I never see these good clouds here
