Oversaturated. And, the focus is soft throughout. Detail lost in the shadows. Recommend you give the HDR process another try.

Nice view, but imo, it's over saturated and lacks in focus.

The saturation is too much in my opinion and nothing seems to be on focus too. The harsh light at the background is distracting too and the image is kind of small.
I'm not experient but i would have used a tripod (if possible), chose a high F/number (or a small aperture) to give more DOF and then processed it trying reduce the white level at the background and make it higher at the foreground, because i think you chosed a nice subject, and the light seemed to be nice on that day. Some nice details on the fore and background would be really nice.

Not sure where to start. I'm afraid I'm having to leave a fairly low vote on this entry. The image size is smaller than it could have been. You should use the maximum allowed size in at least one direction. You've also lost a lot of detail here, probably from the choice of processing, but possibly from the resizing effort as well I'd be interested in seeing the original and if there is anything different that can be done for it.

I shall be rating this challenge by the following criteria:

1 - Not HDR in my opinion

3 - HDR is way over-done, in my opinion

5 - A reasonable use of HDR, but not a very engaging photo, in my opinion

7 - A reasonable use of HDR, and an engaging photo, in my opinion

10 - A fantastic use of HDR, and an out of this world photo, in my opinion

Ouch, way too overssaturated, it hurts the eyes. It also seems oversharpened and you could use 720px.
