I just know I'm going to hear about the top of that cloud. Didn't notice it was creeping out of the frame until I was already home. Oh well. Lesson learned, but it was COLD out in that stiff breeze!

I was trying to put this up without a border but couldn't stay within the 150k limit AND keep the sky from really getting noisy. A lot of detail in that grass. :(

Nice one! Just noticed it via the HDR scores thread. Pitiable how the scorers are beating down true HDR images (like mine) in the HDR challenge because they actually look more or less natural, and presumably voting up the cartoons. It is gonna just foster misunderstanding of the real purpose of HDR and turn it into another grunge effect on our site :-(

Nice capture for this challenge the clouds are well pronounced and the fact that the stalks of grass in the left background are straighter than those in the forground gave me the feeling of a passing wind. Really good image.
