    Hi,
    Here's the thing. The whole shot is fuzzy. I'm thinking the shots you took are poorly aligned. Movement in the water gives an out of focus feel to it also, and the halo around the horizon is pretty bad. The locaton is superb, and I'm a bit of a hdr nut myself. It's just that a good hdr starts with a very good initial photograph. It might serve you well to re-shoot, maybe in RAW, and use a single shot for your HDR conversion. I feel that this locaton would speak for itself if you perhaps took that RAW, did some levels or curves adjustment, a little sharpening and nose reduction, and posted it where it should be. In the landscapes section of this forum. Here's my usual, favourite tutorial for HDR

    Just re-read my post and it seemed a little damning. I guess the idea I'm trying to convey is to keep trying and experimenting and improving. It's what we all do.
    Regards
    Dave

    Default I like it!

    I think it is great for a second attempt! I guess there the other comment is correct that there is a little blur from shake but given the location I can guess as to why the camera didn't stay perfectly still for the series of shots - but I still love the shot! And it really just speaks to having a good tripod... I am leaning towards wood for shots like this as wood doesn't transmit virbration and shake like aluminum does...

    But make no bones about it - great shot for someone just staring out with HDR - especially because the location with the water rumbling had to offer some challenges in keeping the camera perfectly still...

    Very nice...
