Little odd looking, this one is.
I would say lacking detail. No insult intended but are you sure you upped the right photo? THis could easily be mistaken for a straight from camera image.

You call this HDR? Sky is overexposed and trees underexposed.

When you say "HDR" do you mean you took multiple exposures to capture a genuinely higher dynamic range, or is it a single file that's been processed?

It doesn't look like an HDR image at all - the image looks to be over-exposed. There is little cloud detail and the shadows look like a dark grey colour instead of a darker blacker tone.

The time of day you took the photo probably doesn't help much. Try taking the photo again but later in the evening - by then, the dynamic range of the scene shouldn't exceed what your sensor is capable of and you'll get a more pleasant type of light too.

Hmm, you must have a different definition for High Dynamic Range.

maybe you should try looking at my other photos before being rude.
Its called being new and this is one of my first attempts at it. no its not a regular image. its 3 images at 3 different exposure settings. It was late in the evening. it was 7:30pm.

.. kind of looks like a normal over exposed images. HDR should have brought darker clouds.

I hope I'm not one of those people you labelled rude... I'm just trying to offer genuine feedback.

Try processing it again, but this time apply a little more contrast and reduce the exposure to show some detail in the sky (the sky should be darker and bluer) and also try to make the shadows appear a little darker if you can.

HDR is difficult - but the more we practice the better we get. Would love to see another edit of this.

Yes, if this was took at the brink of dawn and in the original shots there was NO detail at all this could be your way of saying you salvaged an underexposed shot. However, it's just that, a photo with below average detail. You maybe looking at the original shot that is very under exposed with no detail thinking you have done a wonderful job bringing it up to a viewable exposure.

So in terms of did you save a photo or bring it up from the dark? We the viewers do not know, BUT since we do not know what the original was all we can do is judge it based on what we are use to seeing in HDR and that is shots taking with adequate lighting revealing a whole DYNAMIC range of color, exposure, and detail.

Your does not have that. However you may have used HDR technique to revive a photo but the end result still doesn't qualify it as a HDR photo. Does that make any since to you at all?

The image doesn't really have that HDR effect to it, as far as bringing out all the details like I have seen in others on here. The image itself isn't bad, and would be a great one to play with I think.

The biggest thing with any image, though, is whether or not you like it. It doesn't matter what anyone else on here says, I do feel most of the reviews above where in well meaning and trying to be helpful, just have to take the way the answers come out with a grain of salt, and do your own interpretation of what they mean by them.

You are doing better then me, though. I have been playing with HDR off and on, and still haven't loaded one on here, because I never got one to where I liked it. I figure if I didn't like it then others wouldn't either.

All you needed to make the second image work is different clouds. I'd prefer the second one way more.
