Wonderful colors on this one. Norway is such a terrific place, looks like the weather was good to you while you were there (photo-wise). This reminds me of those old romantic paintings.

This is beautiful - I feel like I am looking at a Thomas Kinkade painting brought to life - Nicely done!!

nice enough image, but honestly, i'm not a fan of the processing. i understand hdr, but i prefer it when it reconciles the image to the true visual, and this, to me, goes a bit too far. not that it matters, i'm pretty much in the minority on this subject.

Very peaceful. Reminds me of an oil painting.

Beautifully detailed image. Colours look a bit over-processed maybe, but in a sense that adds to the magical atmosphere of the image. There is just so much to look are here - it's like the river leads you into a whole new world.

Gorgeous scene!
I think the post-processing went just a tad too far giving it an unreal look.
I would love to have a whack at the original.

The HDR(I assume) gives it an otherworldly feel. I like it but might prefer a more subtle treatment. 8
