I like it but the only thing that distracted me was the lower left hand corner, where the log seems to look too superficial over the water. And the cloud reflection looks as if it is hovering over the water.

You got skills and by asking for critique is worth telling the good and the bad things, not just telling you it is beautiful, which it is.

It would make a great B&W too. Nice job. I, like Gail, am a big fan....

Maybe just a touch oversaturated.

Thank you all very much!

Critiques are always welcome, wont mean I agree but that boils down to a matter of taste IMO. It's always nice to hear other people's opinions. With music, if I don't like it, I scrap it. The same goes for my photography. This is a little over saturated but that is the look I was after. :)

Yes its your image so you definitely are the only one that knows what you saw and what you want your final print to look like.

Breathtaking landscape shot. I love the vibrance of the colors and the composition. The funky lookin' log looks off though.

The truth is that this is really what HDR is supposed to be: a way to get the entire picture.

While it's a little more than realistic (color saturation is up), it's closer to realistic than a single exposure is going to get.

HDR is really about capturing what the eye would see. The eye (a work of God that beats anything we've invented) can see so much more than a camera can at one time.

I think this photo is a calendar shot. Outstanding work.


Thank you. bw!

What a great photograph!

I agree with a few about the blue tint, I pulled it out slightly and added a touch of green. I'm positive you know how to do this but maybe for others that see too much blue, here it is...Still a great shot. Kudos!
