What a great photo, congrats on the score. This one works very well with the tone mapping.

This is a very awesome image!!! The title is perfect because you can definately feel the turbulence looking at this.

I thought either Iceland or you :) Another "not to be believed" beautifully shot and processed photo!

I love the post-processing! This shot is so surreal!

Are we going to look back at this as the start of your descent into madness? Nice perspective shot. I'm not sure I'm hip with the tone mapping, but that's just my opinion. Apparently the voter disagrees.

I think this would have been so much better without the extreme, unrealistic post-processing done on it. Just not my style, not that it isn't cool in it's own way.

Great colors! (A touch over processed for me. :) 8

This photo is amazing. I need to know more about how this was processed. Excellent!

Nice - but basic editing?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This photo has a grainy touch which I like.

I'm pretty sure I know who took this one. What a great sky day!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/26/2006 08:30:19 PM
What can I say about the sky in this other than Great!!! The perspective is killer, a perfect 10.

Is this HDR? Really beautiful colors and textures, though it looks a bit fake to me. 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Definitely overprocessed for sure but this seems to work well in DPC lately, so it will do well I bet.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2006 12:40:36 PM
Beautiful. Looks like an HDR shot. How did you do that with basic editing?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Gutsy.

Love the colors - 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2006 12:24:27 PM
The only question is which color ribbon will you take!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2006 01:26:44 AM
I think you went too extrem on the HDR, I like the rocks and ocean but the clouds are unrealistic. If you used more than one exposure to make this picture, as is often the case with HDR, its a DQ.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2006 08:57:14 PM
Too much processing for my taste
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2006 07:24:40 PM
So very cool! The colors are over the top, the processing is insane and the image is incredible (and I usually go for realistic images for high scores) 10

Hmm nice bbut is it legal?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2006 05:44:55 PM
Great shot here, but a little to oversaturated IMO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2006 01:37:35 PM
Subject is great, but heavy post-processing was not helpful here IMO - and you still got that sensor-dust spot at the top. It's legal now to remove it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2006 12:30:02 PM
Very sureal, beatifull is all I can say. A 10 if the water was - how can I say this - more watery?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2006 10:04:02 AM
the bottom half of the image looks really great. the black clouds seem a little exagerrated IMO. also there is this one speck in the sky that looks like sensor dust. even if it weren't i would clone it out...

Ribbon worthy.
Unbelievable sky !!
10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2006 01:34:26 AM
I'm sorry, but unlike most of DPC, I find this way to "digity" and overprocessed. I'm sure you'll do well with it, but not from me.
