I can see it just fine.
Nice shot Jenn.

Just a personal preference for me... I'd up the contrast just a hair.

Ok, finally...............I kept coming back and now it works.

I really like the pink colors that came out of the sky. I agree though....the hdr is subtle.

nice Jenn... try adding a bit more saturation to it to make it pop... But. the Subtle look is great to. Also, instead of the free photomatix, use the free Dynamic Photo HDR..it only leaves a tiny WM in the lower left corner.

Jenn, are you a student in any way? I got the license price for photommatix knocked down from $99 to $29 or $39, can't remember which. I think it was $39 which included the application and PS plugin

Nice job on the HDR, I really like the softer pastel colors on this scene, works well. Reminds me a little of the old hand colored postcards.

And those rules are not hard and fast. I'm a student but I don't have a .edu address nor an ID card. I explained that I'm active duty military and going to school at night, online. they took my word for it and gave me the discount.

no problem. 60% is worth a little bit of hassle and legwork.
