    Way overdone, but it actually works like that, rather than most that you see.
    A+ from me.

    nice shot, but the HDR ruins it. the exposure across the frame doesn't look right, especially at the top half of the branch.

    it alway makes me laugh how people go on about how 'techincally its not this or that', who cares! that's a dramatic shot very well done.

    I say if that was hanging up on the wall would it make you stop and look at it?..... yes it would.....

    +1 i like the fact that it looks over processed. It'd be a great wall print.

    I agree. Sometimes overdone is just fine, depending on how it's done and the effect you want to achieve. This one's a cracker in my book. :thumbup: Maybe a tinge too much green on the left (desaturate that a bit), otherwise great.

    Thanks all for feedback and comments.

    I agree with the green, prob is a tad too bright. There is always a fine line with HDR images, too far, not far enough etc....

    I tend to try make mine as 'natural' as I can, but I also love the dramatic effects.
