Really dramatic and love the depths in the clouds. Looks great in the thumbnail...

...but I'm looking at 1080p and we have some serious quality issues. Massive JPEG artifact and blurring in parts of the image. What happened to this lovely image? :\

What others may dislike, is what captured my attention: the clouds look alike watercolor painting.
That and the fact that my parents have a house at Mareny Blau, the next place on the road

The composition doesn't have a strong focus point where the eye settles.

I certainly like the structure of the clouds and the detailed fuzziness in the middle...

...however, the image has not been processed well. There are serious ghosting effects and artifacts in the clouds and most noticeably, in the water. Moreover, it looks like the clouds have too much contrast on the left side and lack a bit on the right side. Coloring could also be improved.

Actias Luna, don't be upset! ;-) If you're doing HDR post-processing with a similar scenery, only use the upper half of the image (sky) and merge it with a regular single exposure image. That way you can avoid the nasty ghosting effects. In general however, I would always recommend processing the RAW image as it can give you the dramatic effects of HDR while preserving the sharpness and detail of the original photo.

Is this taken from the same point as your previous submission? I really like this type of wallpaper. However, in your previous one the ocean feels more massive/daunting.

I can see the same problems, especially on the left half of the water. Too bad. :( The horizon is a bit crooked as well.

Astonishing view, but i see the same problems as above:

There are serious quality issues, especially on clouds - massive artifacts destroys this beautiful shot. Maybe ISO was too high?

I voted this in the loupe, glad it made it. I like the tones and the dramatic setting of the picture. Well taken

I am at odds with the focus and noise. On a close view looks somewhat unnatural or better artificial.

The thumbnail was very promising, an astonishing view...

...but the quality of a true size pic is very disappointing!

My first HDR. It is true that there is some little mistake that I hope to correct ...

I accept constructive criticism when they are like those of PatrickBateman. I'm a novice in this art of photography and post processing. I hope to do better in my next compositions.

Thanks ...

Your image is seriously dramatic. I like the framing and overall exposure. This is one of those "I wish I was there" kind of photos.

Violent clouds are perhaps the hardest thing to make an HDR from. Ghosting and various other artifacts rear their ugly heads. I'd love to see the middle exposure of the pics you used to create this. It's an awesome scene.
