After seeing all these other HDR pictures,  I think I might have over cooked this shot. But we all need to start somewhere.

This was just one of those times you were glad you had your camera with you.

Cool shot, looks like the wind may have been blowing and caused your trees to blur when you merged your photos. As for the overcooked theory it's a matter of taste really. I find the saturation a bit much for mine. Overall great shot would be taken to the next level with some kind of subject to draw the viewer's eye to a point. This photo lacks that for me.

I liked it a lot, perhaps a tad more art than reality though that matters not as you have determined the balance you preferred and in the process you have created a pleasing image.

Striking shot.

Has a "lord of the rings" quality to it.

That's meant to be a complement BTW :)

I like the shot very much.  In this case the slight blurriness in the leaves of the trees works in favour of the ethereal nature of the scene.  As to overcooked, as others have said, it's a matter of taste.  I personally tend not to like that look but in this case I think it works.  The problem I do have with the shot is the competition for my eye: on the one hand there is the sun star on the left and on the other hand there is the sky opening in the central part of the frame.  That might have been worked out in setting up the shot.  But overall I think it is a very compelling composition.

I thank you very much for the sending me in a much better direction on the composition. When I Took the picture.  I could not decide between the sun and the sunlight on the grass area and the sky. So I chose all  (not the best of ideas).

But I shall learn from this.

Thank you!

Totally taken as a complement.

I was trying for a (slightly magical place) as it just finished raining and the water droplets were just glistening on everything.

Thanks

I have to learn not to over saturate my pictures. I get the (a little looks good) so a bit more should make it better. Not always the case though. and yes to a lack of subject! Totally missed that.  Here is to the next attempt.Thank you.
