July 11, 2010. Crawford Station in the White Mountains, Hew Hampshire, built in 1891. A stormy day, great afternoon light and a very photogenic building.
3 image HDR, handheld, Photomatix and CS4.
Canon 50D, ISO 200, 10mm, f/14, at 1/640 - 1/160 - 1/40.,

Hi Dick. I like the tracks coming from the foreground and leading the eye back. The station has a nice saturated color, and the sky is interesting and dramatic.

Hi Dick,
This does have the HDR look to it.....but in a good way for my tastes! I like all the lines and the way the station balances with the sky. I'm OK with lens distortion...but you may still want to rotate it....so the vane is parallel to the sides. All in all very nicely composed and here.....the HDR look is very pleasing to me!

Hi Dick, strong image with an appealing HDR look to it. The elements are nicely placed along with soft lighting due to the cloudy conditions. The sky is well handled with the flow going towards the station.
Agree on the distortion but in this case it's not a major issue looking at the overall...good one...

This does have a painterly feel to it, so I kind of like the slight distortion. I think the dramatic sky makes this work. The HDR works perfect here.

Great capture. I echo all that has been said and think HDR really works on this one. The soft light and dramatic sky really makes the image work. Nice job.

I love this one. The thumbnail looked HDR funk but the image is anything but that. The colors of the station, the dramatic sky, and the tracks all add up to make this quite pleasing.
