Thanks for all your fine comments. Only two weeks of learning to use HDR so I am pretty satisfied. The mountain is again Hekla, easy for me, since I live only 30 miles away. The farm in the foreground is now used as a musiic hall, the cowhouse and the barn and some weekends they play jazz or classical music there. Thanks again.

What a lovely photo. I love the contrast between dark sky, bright middle ground, and subtle foreground. Very well imagined, captured and presented.

OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for the Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: Wow, the quality of the light here stopped me in my tracks - the coloration too is sublime. The whole scene is quite magical and looks very much like a miniature.

Critical stuff: Nothing at all

Overall: Very interesting image.

I really like the lighting in this...this needs to be in a calendar or on a wall someplace...beautiful

The shaft of sun makes the dramatic landscape even more dramatic, well caught.

Great job of capturing the light. It's the aspect of photography that keeps me determined.

Would love to know where this is.
Love the way the sun is shining on the mountain.
Beautiful shot.

This is a beauty in sooo many ways. The mountains look so vast!
