Couple of shots from a recent hike. Didn't get too far into it because I started out late, but was some nice scenery up to the point I stopped at.

Similar shot about 20-30 minutes after sunset.

Opinions or criticisms? I'm open to all!

Slight HDR on the first one. Overlayed an HDR version over the standard exposure and set the opacity to something like 30 or 40%. I then created a layer mask so that the light on the mountains was all from the original. The sky and the foreground bush/log are original + HDR. Is it still too much?

I like #1. #2 seems under exposed. Where is this at?

I really like the first shot, second seems too dark for me.

Not too much. I'm a HDR fan.
