I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: I'm get excited very infrequently with landscape work (some DPC'ers pull it off, but not many) and HDR in particular. Here though, you've created something highly compelling. Those clouds are amazing and the figures add an overlay of story not often seen in landscape work. The colours too should be gaudy but instead they communicate a rich warmth.

Critical stuff: I'm not so keen on the foreground rock - the prominent local contrast in this area delays the eye getting to the much more exciting upper part of the image.

Overall: Very well crafted. Will do well.

Lovely seascape with dramatic skies and obligatory subject/s to add depth and interest. Very Cuttooth like.

Lot of HDR and/or tonemapping in this free study. Huge fan of the technique.

Amazing album. Nice texture and there's a great natural rhythm between the shape of the water on the rocks and the shape of the clouds. Nice story with the three in the light.
