Love what you've done here - great use of HDR to make the image even more dramatic. Lovely skies and foreground with Kelso sat in the middle - fantastic.
Keep up the good work.
No doubt this is a skillfully carried out HDR-image. No doubt that many will like it (it pops out in the TL-gallery). To me, however, it not only is "on the edge", but "over the top". The special HDR-effects "suffocate" the inherent strength of this scene (movement of the water/seaside atmosphere) and of your clever composition (that also conveys much dynamism).
Just my very personal opinion, of course. Do feel free to (dis)agree ;o).
TFS & kind regards,

There is so much to take in on this one, but I really like the surrealism. This is definitely one I will come back to and spend some time with.

I missed this one yesterday. Very nicely done achieving a dreamlike surrealism. You use of HDR here heightens the artistic presentation creating a dramtic sky and sharp, painter realism in the buildings on the horizon.
HDR can be used to simply enhance a photo, or by further manipulation can create effects beyond a plain photographic image. Both have a place and I know many times I like to play with the artistic extremes of the HDR process. Like all art, it will not fit everyone's tastes.
Very Nicely Done
