Had a tough time with this one. I just couldn't see a composition out there. I am happy with this but was looking for more. Anyways, hadn't posted in a while so I thought I'd put it up.

Thanks for looking,

20d, 10-22, iso200 f11 blend of 3 images

The HDR blending looks quite good--but almost to a fault. I think that the HDR eliminated the contrast on the horizon you would need to illustrate the depth of the image. Restoring a little bit of that contrast would go a long way in making the image one that you could "walk into."

Thanks Harold. I think its, straight and just an illusion but I will double check.

David, thanks but no HDR here. Manual blend, as all of mine are. But you are right about the contrast. I think I had been working on it so long and was tired and lost some perspective. I will put up an edited version soon.

Thanks again guys,

Here's an update. A little more contrast in the foreground and a crop I think works better.

I do like #2 better. The extra contrast helps.

You hit the home run with the second version. Just stellar.
