Sorry I've been away for a while, but I hope to remedy that shortly with some more time on here to provide feedback. Welcome any new kids on the block I've missed.

This is a Three-shot HDR (can ya tell? ;-) ) taken in pretty awful weather hiking down the the Llanberis Pass in Snowdonia in the Mountains of North Wales.
This didn't quite go to plan, as I wanted a much smaller aperture to get a better focal depth to the shots. In the end I had to take it with larger apertures just so I could get a clean shot without getting the front of the lense covered in rain. This shot is the best of a bad bunch because of all the rain, so it'll have to do.
Having said that, I do like the composition on this one.

Having been to Llanberis Pass several times as a youg bloke on climbing trips...this image brings back a few old memories. I also like the compsition too and you have certainly captured the feel of the area here.
Nice one.

The HDR WIZARD is back.

May I ask if the rarinda prakarsa effect was added or it was part of the photo?

Awesome HDR landscape and only the Honez can make it...

hmm, never heard of that effect before. One google search later http://digitalphotographer.com.ph/forum/showthread.php?t=16300 reveals all.
Interesting though it is, no the yellowish look wasn't added although the HDR brought it out (which I desaturated a bit)

Thanks all for your comments.
No one's picked up on the (artificially added) sun rays coming through the clouds. There was a bit of a highlighted area there that looked a bit bland, so I Photoshopped some sun rays in with a soft light opaque blend.
