My first HDR (High Dynamic Range) image. This is a combination of three different exposures. I like the way the HDR make the photo look like a painting. I think it suits the subject well.

I really like the colors here. All the different greens and the dark violet tree go very well with the brown and gray house.

Wow, what a subject to be shooting - Great!

You are dead right - the fact that it makes the photo look like a painting is entirely suitable for this subject...this kind of architecture was very consciously designed to look 'picturesque' - that is, a suitable subject fit to be painted.... ;-)
Beautiful photo and beautiful subject.

Excellent subject choice for an HDR image: good job. I'd like to learn this technique too! However, the black areas on top are a little distracting: is that burned in? Maaan...who lives in that mansion!
