Amazing photo! Shame about the granularity on the clouds, otherwise a perfect wallpaper in my opinion.

I am from the Philadelphia area in Pennsylvania and cannot believe how good this looks. Fantastic work.

I'm sorry, I apologize, please forgive and I beg a thousand pardons, but is this HDR in action or otherwise altered and super-saturated? It is a lovely subject but (and please refer to the above) to me it is an overly sweet confection. I would love to see it less dramatically presented.

Fantastic shot, and I'd love to see more from the area (I'm also a local, drive on that road every day after work!), but I have to agree with stubulman that the post-processing in this ruins it for me.

Drive by that spot all the time - but never seen it look like this - Quite nice. All this time I though I had to fly around the world - never knew I had something like this in my own backyard :)

nice pic, i guess saturation is higher then usual, and grains.. you could resubmit with a noise removal filter.

Well done Josh! I really love the way the sun breaks through the clouds. Very up-lifting!

Thanks for the comments! And thank you interface lift for posting it!

This picture is a single image split into three separate exposures, so it's more of a pseudo-hdr. The sky is not hdr at all, but rather a single image that was tone mapped.

Yes it is a sweet confection, therefore I would not recommend it to the visually diabetic.

A few are bothered by the hdr-ness of it, which is understandably relative, as with the graininess. I enjoy the look of both, but if someone has bad memories or pet peeves, one can certainly run their downloaded version through noise ninja or even darken areas to make it look more restricted to the mechanics of the camera. Whatever's clever!

Anyway, Valley Forge is really a beautiful place, and the clouds in Pennsylvania are stunning.
