This is the view of the golf course at the Inn of the Mountain Gods Casino & Resort. I was on an upper level outside the lobby area of the resort. We have had a lot of rain in our state this summer, and everything is uncharacteristically green.

Converted from RAW: used three different exposures from the same RAW file, HDR-style.

Blimey! What a difference from the original. I would have looked at the original and said "nothing special, move on" but this has come out fantastic. Good work.

Nothing else to say...well wait...maybe I would have cloned out the poles in the water...but that is the only thing.

Wonderful rich colors, even though horizon seems to cut this in half, which I'm sure others will mention, I think it works well in this shot. good luck.

Love this scene! Amazing clouds/sky and colours throughout.

The lighting on the trees and clouds give this a very painterly look which works well for this image -- I bet it would look great printed on canvas. Such an advantage to have some clear air to shoot through : )

I love the colours and the fresh, just after rain feel of this image, and the gorgeous clouds. To my eye, though, the horizon seems just a very tiny bit tilted towards the right. 7

great scene. too processed maybe? The difference in light in the sky and scenery is not quite right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love the colors and the sky. The crop seems chopped. I held my hand up and eliminated the right tree all the way up and although it changed it to portrait orientation, I think compositionally, it works better. Nice effort.

This is beautifully processed and wonderfully precise, but it feels way too light in the lower left and middle for me. I wish it were burned down to keep the eye from escaping off the bottom of the image. Sweet work!
