Wow! Oh wow, this is definitely going on my desktop, and my new favorite wallpaper. This is absolutely beautiful, I wish I could see it in person! Where did you take this at? Amazing wallpaper, the colors look great, and the angle you took it at was perfect! Nice shot.

This is a good example of where some HDR would be needed. Other suggestions include a longer shutter speed for smooth water and using the Shadow/Highlight tool in Photoshop to brighten the foreground. It is a good photo but it looks kinda distorted.

I decided not to do HDR because it is not real. The photo was exposed the why I saw it in my mind. I also used a large aperture so I would get light falloff and achieve the vignette I wanted. It might appear distorted to you but it was shot with a 16mm to give the trees some curvature.aka lens pincushion/barrel distortion.

HDR does not render a photograph in an "unreal" way. HDR, in fact, is a technique that allows you to render the photo in the way it actually appeared to your eye. Digital images have a much narrower tonal range than the Mark-1 eyeball. HDR allows you to more closely match what the eye is actually seeing. In your scene above, when your eye goes to the darker shadowy areas it adjusts and allows you to see detail. I'm preaching to the choir here so forgive me. I like this image a lot but I agree that a bit more detail in the shadows would have helped it out. I disagree about the water though. I like that just the way it is. Possibly it would have looked interesting if blurred with motion but I think it looks good this way too.

Cool. Remembers me a bit the Devil's Tower (Wyoming) in Steven Spilberg's movie 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' (1977). Thanks and keep it up.

Wow, nice shot...only if I could've been there
that's seriously a spectacle.

Reminds me of the time when I've been to Devil's Tower...I was only 4 but that sight still remains fresh in my head.

This is serious work. It's good enough to be a Windows wallpaper. Wait, what am I saying? It's better than that.
