Excessive contrast, blown highlights, halos. What's the purpose of the shot? What are you trying to convey? As it is, it just looks like an HDR attempt gone bad.

I would shift my concentration to getting really great photos...HDR is not being your friend:( Find your own niche!:D


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

It looks more like a Tone Mapped image than anything HDR. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, which this image does not seem to display.

Is this a single image or a bracket of images?
