I just downloaded a free HDR program to play around and this is my first shot. I little over the top, I believe (but kinda in a nightmare/dream state kinda way).

Really need to get used to the controls!

Cool shot.

Which free program did you get?

Thanks!

I downloaded LuminanceHDR. This is my one and only so far - really need to get in and try out the controls and settings. I don't know anything about HDR but I am also going to download the trail version of a few others just to compare the "fee" v "free".

The image looks flat. A bit of contrast adjustment could really bring out the image and increase the color saturation to bring out the colors in the image.

Thanks for the input. Will try to figure that out!

I preffered the first, can we see it without the colour? Saturate it again but with added contrast for depth... Reason being, that where that clouds meet the horizon you can see a strip of sky but at first glance it looks like some seriously bad haloing.
Just looks like a mistake even if it isn't... I liked the darkness of the first one.

I like the first one. Looks surreal and creepy.
