    Great series you have going.
    Thanks for the commetn p.du.v. It has taken me quite some time to get HDR results that don't look like the technique has been overused. It is pretty easy to make a fake looking HDR with Photomatix, but to make one that is looking a bit realistic is a lot harder.
    What I do now is making use of the tone-compression algortihm of photomatix. The results with this method look much more realistic than those made with the Detail Enhancement process.
    The result does look very flat after photmatix, so after that I always enhance the results and colours with Capture NX.

    Andrew, thanks for the comment. I really like the series you posted. The colours are great, and the pictures look very nice together. Rooz, congrats on the new lens. Looks like it will be of great use for shooting insects.
    Tim, very funny image. Thanks for posting.

    I agree, a very nice HDR, though I'm not sure I see why it was necessary. Of course, that could be because it's so well done, but the light conditions and time of day are usually those where the light is very soft and useable across it's range. Was the problem that you lost too much light in the foreground? It would be interesting to see the original exposures used in the photo.

    As far as the composition, nice use of near - middle - far. Thom Hogan preaches this for landscape work on his website, and this is one of the best examples I've seen in a while.

    Here's an old picture I took in Italy (San Marino, actually) last summer. I didn't post it yet, because there were many out of focus branches covering the sky that were bothering me and I was too lazy to do the cloning. When going through my pictures, I decided to do that now.

    Thanks for the comment, Eric.

    I could probably have pulled enough detail out of the middle exposure, and in different conditions I would probably have done that. However in the middle , the shadows were pretty dark, and the sky was in some part nearly blown out, so the result would probably have pretty noisy shadows and not as smooth transitions in the sky.

    When taking this shot it was nearly windstill and I happened to have my tripod with me, So I thought HDR would probably give the best results.

    By the way, here are the original images:
