Great shot considering the technolgy used to capture.. very well done, my eye does go to that dark blue halo around the clouds first (from editing ?), but overall i really quite like this.. :)

i really like the idea behind this, but i agree that the sky is a bit overprocessed. sometimes delicate clouds do not need such a heavy handed hdr treatment. perhaps some layer masks in photoshop would have helped separate the sky from the land, so you could process each element individually.

Beautifully rendered image, especially the ground with the rich greens and yellows. the sky is a bit overcooking in my opinion, but this is likely due to the limitations of the technology, not the photog....

Just to the left of the frame there is a big ugly house that got in my way. That was really a drag.

I really like the look and feel of the photo but my initial impressions was it feels like I am only viewing half a photo - perhaps this is due to it being portrait orientation or just my curiosity to see what is to the right and left.

I now note that it was taken on a camera phone - amazing!!

nice shot, great depth in the field, my only issue is the sky seems a bit unnatural, looks tone mapped with a heavy blue halo around the large cloud and you have some grey artifacts up there

i think pull the saturation down a bit
