Yeah, this is a text book HDR image and has 'front page' written all over it. Nice one!

A perfect example of 'stuttered' clouds. See this: http://sihdr.blogspot.com/2009_11_01_archive.html for a technical explanation of how slow objects need to be travelling in order not to have their leading edges reduplicated. This effort is a FAIL. Bob

Hi Bryan, Thanks for the note. First I think that you're a great photographer. You should look at http://www.stuckincustoms.com and ask why you can't do the same; I mean, the website and the book and all. You obviously are able to do it. What with

The e-mail system ate my e-mail. ... all the groupies on this site telling you how all your pictures are 10/10 and so forth I thought you could do with a wake-up call. You should treat your photos like a professional; do you think you could sell a de

An amazing photo. This is a 10 for me. I would ignore those folks who are into "mental masturbation" and stuttered clouds aspects of HDR. This photo looks good. Leave the rest of the BS to the professorial bunch!

Well... a lot of controversy about this photo. Regardless - I enjoy it very much for its "failure" - contrast between fast moving clouds and very static boat. It reminds me my hiking trips (with the camera), high into the mountains and those clouds moving

...very fast above or below me with mountains being... anchored. I am not going to rate this picture (may be it is overrated or not-I don't care) - but thank you dudakphoto! You maid my day! Enjoy what you do - regardless some canons!

Spot on? Didn't think I could fault it until I read the post about the clouds and now I see it. I love the image and apart from thos clouds stuttering it would be perfect. So - how do you fix those stuttering clouds? 9/10

1st comment, your work is too good for this site. 2nd comment, where the heck are all these raters coming from? I never heard a peep out of half of these people and they've come out of the woodwork to rate your photo.

Actually this could be a 20 if the ratings went that high

One of my favorite HDR shots to be sure, but those clouds could have been better if brought in to PS from a medium exposure and merged in on a separate layer. Compositional elements could be a little better, but overall a great shot.

Wonderful Image! I'd love to see a similar boat, but unfortunately I haven't seen one like that in person myself. Good Job.
