A nice subtle HDR landscape.
This one works well for me.
The polarised sky adds drama whilst the foreground (and how it's lit) offers an interesting scene to latch the eyes on.
How you got it sharp over 3 exposures is quite fortunate. (no wind about I gather...)

Thanks! Fortunate indeed, the weather was quite cold and and there was almost no wind but it is very difficult to get almost no movement over three exposures if you have long grass in the foreground.

Another from the same hike:

These are all excellent, very subtle use of HDR. I like it! That last B&W is beautiful.

These are great winter shots that don't have the "edge" you usually see in such images. Very well done.

Beautiful.

One reason that HDR works so well in these photos is that, except for the sky, there is very little uniform tone. Perhaps, some of the sky in one of the originals can be blended back in to decrease the halo'ing?

Another reason is the gorgeous lighting!

And the clouds in the first BW are fantastic!!!
