As the title goes, my first attempt at either of these techniques. C&C welcome!

I really like the 2nd photo! It looks very realistic. Very nice first try!

The halo around the trees and building makes the first photo unrealistic which ruins it for me.

Great shot. As stated before, doesn't look over cooked. Too often it seems HDR shots look over done but not here. Nice work.

I agree with the comment about the halos around the trees and building. But that second shot is really nice. Nice work!

Thanks guys! Fair comment about the halos at the skyline, I was in two minds about it myself. Will take another crack at it when I get some spare time.

Not a fan of the HDR...halos around the church and along the tree line are a distraction, may also be slightly underexposed (was this shot with multiple exposures or did you take one shot and build multiple shots from that)? Looks like the second picture could use a very slight boost in exposure as well.

The HDR was built from three separate exposures a stop over and a stop under. Definitely not ruling out variances in exposure since my monitor is not calibrated. I did however adjust the exposure up until it just started to wash out then dropped a bit to compensate. I do need to invest in a Spyder.
