Went to this beautiful place with my camera club. The evening turned out to be fantastic weather wise with beautiful light. I have a thing for skies so i am always looking out for dramatic or unusual skies. Used my Sigma 10-20, tripod, and pointed camera towards sky and took 5 different exposures.
Later combined these 5 exposures using Photomatix. Then put completed image from Photomatix to CS3, where i used levels, curves, resized and sharpened slightly.

Nice cloud. Great depth in the cloud due to polorizer(or equavalent) filter. Good luck.

i really love the colors in this, but the distortion of the perspective bothers me.

Nice capture of the sky.

The nature of the HDR photos tend to give a surreal look. Unfortunately I think there is a discrepancy in that respect between the sky and the rest of the picture (ie. one part of the photo looks very surreal, but the rest looks unprocessed). It's hard to find that balance with HDR.

Also there is not a whole lot going on in the foreground, maybe a better subject as the main focus of the picture would have made things a bit more interesting.

Very cool. Love the lines in the grass and the high contrast.
