Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: HDR III (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-7D
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM for Canon
Date: Jun 5, 2010
Aperture: 11
ISO: 100
Shutter: 2
Galleries: Nature, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: Jun 6, 2010

This is a 3 frame hdr plus manual blended original to retain the motion blur and clouds pattern, because, you know, Photomatix ruined some of the pattern.
The clouds in the right portion were shaped by mother nature, not by slow shutter.

Many thanks to all the comments and votes!

Well this is a stunning shot. Incredible. The only flaw I can point out is that I don't live near there. Excellent.

Gorgeous view and very good HDR processing in my mind. Only suggestion would be to bring out a bit more detail on the grassy hill.
