    Thanks a lot for the replys everyone. Getting all these replys is very encouraging.
    PHeller, what do you mean with out of contrast? Did I overuse the D-Lighting on that one? By the way, I fixed number 7, the coats were sharp in the original, but the detail was lost after resizing. Normally I use unsharp mask after resizing but this time I forgot that.

    I see #7 as being a little too dark for my tastes. I like my clouds really white, and it looks like you took it just 20 mins to late or something. Just looks a little dark or out of contrast. Too many greys I guess.

    #6 the resizing could very well have effected the sharpness of the picture, didn't really think of that.

    Wow! I think they are all beautiful, but #1 and #5 are definitely my favorites.

    Prospero

    HDR shots are beautiful...could you post them on my thread too? I love them.

    I think the first one is maybe a tad overdone as the walls of the building look a little "pastelly" (is that a word? it is now...).

    But apart from that they are stunning.

    Congratulations!

    Did you use a tripod for your HDR images? If not you have a damn steady hand! also, how many exposures did you use for the HDR photos?
    RAW or Jpeg?

    thanks

    Ok, I see. Thanks for elaborating. I tried to avoid blowing out the clouds on the left when taking the shot and I guess that must have caused the greyish clouds. I'll try to play a bit with control points and curves, perhaps I can improve the shot.

    Thanks for the compliments, Kellie and Herc.
    Herc, I agree that the first is perhaps overdone and the buildings look 'pastelly', but in this case I like the effect. I'll post the HDR's in your thread as well and will give you some extra details on how I made them.
