Wonderful images eveyone, thanks for posting.

Quick tip for Photomatix users. Once you have tonemapped an image and saved it. Select undo tone mapping from the process menu (Ctrl Z) and then tonemapping (Ctrl T) to take another development avenue without having to reload the images. This escaped me for sometime now, hope it helps.

This is a first attempt at HDR, any suggestions?

That's a pretty cool idea, and the image is interesting and colorful. I like its graphic appearance. Is this a pseudo-HDR (I assume)?

I can hardly tell it's an HDR. And probably wouldn't have been able to if it hadn't been posted here and you hadn't mentioned it. So on that score according to many, that's a good job! I am curious if that's what you were after, or if you tried lots of other looks, like grungy, etc. Lots of people's first HDR's (mine included) tended to overdo the process and pictures looked over the top. Your first try looks great.

First one is very cool, a sweeping powerful image.

No, that's three images processed in Photomatix done in surreal mode.

It's hard to be specific with comments here as you provide no info on how you shot it or processed it. I will say that you have a lot of movement in it (trees, grass, water) and this causes the ghosting and loss of sharpness to the processed image. Personally, I'd work on the alignment more in this shot. Assuming you processed 3 or 5 images, I might try working with only 2 to see if you can get better alignment. Also the clouds look a bit too dark. To my eye, this is a nice start but I'd work a lot more.

Were you on a tripod? Did you have your shutter speeds high enough to stop movement? There are a lot of factors to consider.

I'm pretty happy with this one. YMMV.
