I visited Joshua Tree N.P. yesterday with NavyDoc, and spent about 1/2 the day there. Wind was horrible, and the clouds were moving at about 40-45mph. The first shot was taken as the sun was barely up, in fact it was pretty dark there. I bracketed my 3 shot exposures by 1 1/2 either way, and this is pretty much what it looked like. The second shot is a more placid shot with the wind really blowing and the clouds were moving quickly. C & C always appreciated and respected.

Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.

Love the 2nd one. The first one... not so much.

I'm sorry to have wasted everyones time looking at the first one. I'm still new at this HDR stuff and I think I overprocessed the shot. For clarification, I shot this shot with the winds gusting to 45 mph, moving the clouds like you wouldn't believe. I also shot it at 30secs at f16. So, I am posting a remake, hopefully a little more to everyones liking. Again, sorry. Al

The redo's better Al, but it's still a bit too much for me. I like the second shot in the OP the best.

The second has a really neat look to it

the first (well the edit of the first)... its cool, has like a painting look to it which works

Still learning (yes, newb) like some of you here, so please take any recommendations/opinio​ns with that in mind.

The first one reminds me of a blacklight poster. I kinda like blacklight posters : )

No need to be sorry. I wouldn't have used HDR on No.1. Just a long exposure. Looks like a great sunrise. The 2nd is pretty good

Great second shot Al.
And by the way, don't take anything that Thomatis says to heart....he really thinks hard before he comments :)

I like the second shot.. In the pre edit first shot I keep looking for the mushroom cloud!! The edit is a great improvement though. Nice work.
