Nice landscape. The land seems lost in the mid-tone blahs, wish that it were brighter with more contrast. This caused me to miss the wonderful capture of the sky at first glance, but a second viewing gives you a bump.

A very dark and moody scene, beautifully composed. Very nice!

The details in the meandering hills are wonderful. The light coming through the clouds is so soft. I love the hazy lazy feel of this.

Nice shot! I really like the rays shining through onto the mountains giving them that glow. This has got to be California, I'm thinking just north of the Grapevine off the 5?

Great tones. The sun rays really work in this photo.

The image seems a bit muddy overall. Maybe that is what you were going for, though. In every other way this shot makes me go "ooooh wow". The hills blend into the clouds so wonderfully, and the rays of light just seem devine.

Fabulous photo, great colors and a majestic sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Seems the opposite to me, somewhat compressed dynamic range. Indeed, the histogram data does not effectively fill the range and cuts off at both ends, especially the the high end. Perhaps the result is what you intended, but it seems lacking in contrast to me. The shot is quite compelling and beautiful when the histogram is adjusted.

This is such a wonderful, breathtaking scene and a great example of the best use for HDR. Congrats for being at the right place at the right time to capture it.

Lovely colours. You've captured the rays from the sky nicely.

Excellent! Not an expert on HDR by any means, but this certainly seems to be a perfect study in it with such a beautiful range of light, shadow and color! The sunrays make it such a dramatic photo!

Lovely landscape and nicely composed. It seems a touch on the dark side on my calibrated monitor. ALso I'd like to see some more saturation in the colors. 6
