these are hdr done as exposure fusion, they are very natural without the wild colors and gray skies. they have true blacks and whites all at the same time.

for comparision i included 1 exposure fusion and tone mapped hdr for comparison...the whites are very gray in the tone mapped version..

the exposure fusion merely look like extended range normal photos with better shadow detail

want me to try the nik filter set on yours and re-post? the filters may make it tooooooo over the top but if you like ill give it a go. the look will be very different... your has an almost pastel look to it, very nice by the way..

the filters i have in mind will pop the detail, pop the clouds out and darken the sky for a real kind of in your face, your buring my eyeballs look ha ha ha

Want to bet on that ? LOL, it is not my thing at all. Most of it looks either metallic, cartoony or its so over done that it hurts the eyes. I have seen some that you would never know were HDR's, those I like as they still look like photographs. Maybe its just not my thing, dunno.

If you want to see what I think of standard HDR it isnt what is posted thus far. This to me is HDR (for example linked below) a contact of mines work on Flickr. This is what I am working for. Not just regular photos with pastel colors overlaid.

+1. I don't mind some image slight blending as long as it looks natural or real, but HDR looks too unreal.
