Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that contributes well to the challenge

In itself this is a pleasantly interesting image, the monument stands out in what appears to be a well maintained cemetery of other tombstones that are eclipsed by this edifice. I donít want to be as harshly critical of your HDR processing but I can see what they are referring to with the halos around the cross and the trees. Successful HDR needs to be done very subtly in order to achieve a realistic and pleasing end result. I think your composition could also be improved with the monument further to the left thus avoiding the cropping of the footstones and making more of a feature of the tree and whatever interesting stones we are missing from the right. In terms of the challenge brief you have some interesting detail here Anton, well done.

Massively overdone tonemap does this image no favours at all, the halo around the cross and the trees is especially uncomfortable.

I scored this a 5 due to the extreme halos around the trees and cross. Also due to the blown out area's of the sky. High points are the tones on the sculpture itself and the stone. I would have scored it higher if you would have gotten just little closer to the subject. Not sure what program was used for the HDR blending, but it looks like the detail slider was used a little strongly.
