very unfortunate too-flat tone mapping

A pleasing composition, but the post processing is a little over-done for my tastes. In particular I find the haloing at the top of the trees distracting.

nice view but you need to reduce the strength of your hdr to avoid the halo effect around the trees

a bit over edited in the trees...

I like the composition, but I am always torn by this type processing...not so sure

This image seems to be oversharpened, and out of tilt.

too over edited, halos in the treeline are a huge distraction.
