Here's my attempt at an HDR. Three pictures were used. Some post-processing done. Please comment! :)

Anyone? I am looking for opinions as far as cropping, saturation, and HDR level are concerned.

As far as the HDR goes, nothing really jumps out at me. It doesn't look too much (or too little) like a cartoon so not much to discuss there.

As far as the shot goes, I feel as though there isn't a strong subject here. The sun looks tiny in the frame and the trees are heavily cropped. There isn't much that sort of draws you into the shot. How heavily cropped was this? Perhaps you can post the whole shot for people to look at.

Seeing the sharp edges of the sun through the clouds is a nice look but the overall comp of the photo don't really work for me. Too much crop and as mentioned above, not enough subject interest.

Thank you guys. I really appreciate your comments. I was wondering about the crop myself. I guess I could have cloned the electric wire/pole out and then include more of the trees. Here's the original picture (after HDR processing).
