A few shots from a weekend on the mountains of North Wales. Comments as always are welcome. :)

Firstly a subtle HDR Panorama from the summit of Snowdon, Wales and England's highest peak at 1085m (3560ft).

Another HDR Pano from the descent, (my personal fave of the two).

Both taken with a 600D gripped, EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8, Manfrotto proB tripod and all carried in the truely amazing F-Stop Loka pack! Reviewed by users of CPOTN here: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=937528

The first one looks too artificial, for my taste, almost paint and ink job. The second one is definately better, well in my opinion.....

Great job! I was there about 9 years ago. We stayed in some old type of Navy training cabin. I remember driving up a mountain and there was a huge lake at the top.

Beautiful landscape. Great captures. Not sure if the HDR works here so well for me. Can you also post the regular pic?

I'll try and get round to that soon. :)

very nice shot and perspective, but too much HDR for me. Not that I don't like HDR, but its well over processed (even though you said subtle. i don't think it's subtle)

Fair point, I will admit that landscapes arent really what get me excited, but when you're walking a mountain on a sunny day what else are you to do!

As such, I always find my own landscapes a little boring and try to Jazz them up with some HDR PostPro. By request, I will go back and process this shot with no HDR. Watch this space.... :confused:

I really like number 2, tonemapping really brings out the skies, it's why I tend to put mine through the machine.
