Again MA another great landscape image.
Love the reflections again in this shot, also the Diagonal lines of the hills really lead your eye to the middle of the photo.
Great Shot!

Very cool shot. That river is like a mirror. What's your EXIF on this one? I'm trying to figure out if you are getting those freakishly interesting clouds normally or if they're a bit of a "time lapse" shot.

Thanks very much gang :)

Iggy ... this is an HDR of 1/20, 1/500, and 1/2500 ... taken consecutively with my high speed mode (6 fps) so less than half a sec between the first and last shot. The clouds were moving much at all.

Ahh, I see. It's probably the different layers of light and shadow caused by the HDR treatment then? Maybe? I don't know what is is but a lot of your shots have really cool looking cloud imagery. Whatever it is, I like it! :)

Some of them I will add some selective blur treatment to the cloud .... but I didn't for any of these.
The wide angle lens in some of these recent ones will have helped also as it 'stretches' the view somewhat. The close up items look closer than real and the background items look further away. Opposite of what a zoom lens does pretty much.
Apart from that the HDR process does also create this effect at times as the brightest bracketed shots usually lose sharpness at the detail is lost. When blended with the other shots it can create that movement you see/feel.

Very good HDR images, like the calm water and the reflections of the clowds.
