Flowing Water
Lens: 10-20mm Sigma Camera: Pentax K-r Photo Location: Amherst, NH ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F16 

Looking to improve on HDR moving water shots these were my three favorites of the night went with much longer exposure times this time around for effect

For me, #2 is the most successful of these -- with the shorter shutter speed, there's still a sense of flowing water, and the highlights aren't so blown. Also, I like how the composition balances the rocks and water, with the water flowing out of both bottom corners of the frame. #1 feels too tight; #3 has too much background. I don't care for heavy tonemapping and saturation so the treatment is not to my taste.

I like HDR and these are nicely processed. Of the three I like the second one best, I think it has the best composition.

I tend to desaturate my HDR far more (I'm definitely not a good photographer yet, so I guess that's only a matter of taste), and I also think the second one looks better. However, there are some weird blueish spots on the upper part of the picture.
