My first attempt was over processed with halos and I totally gave up on the technique until today. This grist mill had huge sunshine spots across the mill and trees so I thought I'd roll the HDR dice again. How does this look?

I like the shot, but to me the HDRness is a little light. But thats just my opinion.

I don't see the sunshine, but I like the shot. It's well composed and an interesting subject. You did a nice job on the capturing enough range to bring out the shadow areas and there are no halos to speak of, but I disagree with Jedi that the shot does have a tone mapped feel to it and is not very natural looking. Not necessarily a negative, just depends on the look you're trying to achieve. Well done for a second effort.

The sun was blowing out the tree tops but I had also scaled the photo and pulled out most of the tree tops just to crop this photo a bit. J-Blake are you saying this image looks unnatural? What is there too much of?

I'm saying it looks tone mapped. Just a statement of fact, not meant to be offensive.
