It's a little over-saturated for me.. In my humble opinion, it makes it look a little too fake..

I like it. A very beautiful valley and mountains.

This is a very nice image but just like the previous poster pointed out it does seem to be a little over-saturated to be realistic. I love the colors and textures in this scene but I personally would have toned the saturation down a bit. It's fairly easy to go over the edge with HDR. I learned the hard way myself as well. It's better to be subtle when it comes to tone mapping to achieve realistic representation of the scene. HDR is great when it's done right. Keep up good work. We all live and learn. :)

Nice area, but the HDR is way overdone, to the point where it detracts from the image. Just my two cents.

I disagree with the previous people stating that it is over saturated. Maybe it is just my monitors but it looks great to me. Nice work.

Good to see more of Japan on IFL, but this one's way too busy! The HDR distracts from what could have been a superb and pleasing photo. Very nice otherwise, but I can't say it's a favorite.

If you're still in the area I would love to see a regular take on that valley and sky. Some truly incredible scenery, but the over-saturation - as "rczeien" said - seems to detract from your subject.

Wow... That sky is simply amazing! Just like in your previous submission. Great work, would love to see more :)

Very nice background, but the foreground colours are a bit too warm.

I like the foreground, mid-ground and the mountain range. Sorry to say that the cloudy sky also appears to be in the foreground; I wish it were a bit more recessive.

Ok awesome, BUT not for Wallpaper! too confusing in colours and contrasts.

Beautiful scenery; well framed. But like so many of the shots posted here, the intensity of the colors creates a garish look bordering on cartoon. A lighter hand in this area might make for a better presentation.

Of course if that's the intent of those posting then the goal has been achieved most convincingly.

Heh! Quite the emphatic dissent! To each his own I guess. I didn't know there was a right way and wrong way to HDRI. Perhaps I should have brought this image before the Grand High HDR Council for approval to ensure that it doesn't break any of the HDR laws that were established to appease the sensibilities of a nondescript majority. Of course, I kid. Well, in any case, at least I like it, heh.
