Only through the magic of Disney... Palm trees and Everest in the same shot.

I tried everything to capture what the sky actually looked like as a storm rolled across... finally resorted to the "one shot HDR" image you see. Bracketed (+/- 1 and 2) exposures created from RAW data, tonemapped with Photomatix and "cleaned up" in PS.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

A decent enough shot and does show an interesting paradox, but even without having been to Disneyland/world? it's easy to see that it's a theme park shot. It's a good capture in terms of the technical aspects, but personally I feel that its lack of uniqueness (you can be sure that it's no accident that you can see Everest from that point) is what kept your votes at the 5-6 range.

Keep on shooting and entering!

Feel free to PM me
