HDR works perfect here to add that strong contrast we can see Les. Light is so amazing on the image and goes perfect with the beautiful view of your frame here...EXCELLENT photo ++++

These are the kinds of scenes that make you catch your breath--in real life and when you view a picture of them. Lovely light in all the right places, a brooding sky, and a fairy tale scene for this Nebraska lady--couldn't ask for more. Great job, Les.

This is superbly beautiful, Les.
I have also been trying some HDR lately. But I seem to be a far cry from what can be done. I have to practice more on it.
Congrats,in any case. And I suppose we will see it again soon.
