this was actually taken a few weeks ago, and i know i will get dinged if anyone puts in a request...

but honestly, i just want to get some feedback... i never seem to capture these kinds of images in time for a challenge - for instance, i was actually going to go redo this one (well, similar - but i had some major lense dust issues on this) but it has literally PUKED snow all week... it didnt help with the outdoor night time portraits either :(

also, first time with tonemapping, which i scoured the forums for and seems to be allowed in basic??? it wasnt too clear...

Not a bad image, the dust is horrible though, you really must learn to clean your sensor..

looks like it is tone mapped, however this is a great shot.

Im not sure about this image and the clarity in it. Is it dust on the sensor in the clouds? whatever it is, it's really breaking the image down. I do like the three layers and the breaks you have in it. You have the elements for a much better photo than what I think this would eventually score. Nothing wrong with your vision. You have to work on pp and cleaner images and Im sure you would have do even better

looks like there has been a lot of topaz adjustment which makes the sky look noisy.

A crooked horizon line and confusing title is lessening the impact of this picture for me.

I like the shot, but I think a little lighter on the hdr

Whoa! Your sensor appears to be as dirty as mine is. But... really... there's not way that's possible. *rolleyes*

I love this composition. 6
