    I know it's not the best "landscape" to be photographing, but I was out taking pictures of the rainbow and decided what the heck. I took a picture of the front of the house and the flag pole.

    I have 2 different programs to use for HDR post processing and I always get a different outcome with each. I'm really not sure which looks better. I know one is more "normal" and the other is a little dramatic. I always tend to be on the dramatic side in processing for some reason. I don't know...it's just more appealing to me. I understand some like dramatic and some like it to be more natural looking. So, I'm torn.

    I just thought I would get everyone's opinions and thoughts.

    im having a hard time choosing too! in 1 and 3 it looks like the sun is coming out after a good rain, and 2 and 4 look like a tornado is still yet to come because of the shading, makes me think its dusty.

    I like the contrast and drama of the first of each set.
