I think I know this exact spot -which shouldn't be a surprise I suppose considering it is a great spot. Great HDR. I often feel inclined to go greyscale for some reason around here too. Good to see Cleve with some faves! =)

Dramatic image, which I've studied a lot, due to its dramatic impact on the viewer. Congrats on your top 10 finish.

Nice B&R HDR. I like the crispness of the wood at forground. The sun appears a bit blown up.

Wonderful use of b/w. I'm not really sure what city that is, but I'm going to make a wild guess by the style that this could be an ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' AP entry.

Nice composition and good placement of elements. The effect on the sky seems to have some problem.

This is a perfect example of HDR that doesn't need colour! The only thing that bothers me is the oversharpening? on the brush and rocks in the foreground.
