    I see no shortcomings! Nicely done with the curve in the road.
    This is intensely beautiful and a well done HDR.

    Great job... Is this multiple exposure, or single exposure. If multiple, what were you EV setting and how many exposures?

    Thanks guys. ^3 exposures at 0, -1, +1. (Looking at the originals, the blown highlights are a result of the processing. I might re-process it to recover some of the detail in the clouds.)

    Very nice. A minor quibble would be the white line of the road coming from exactly the lower left corner. I might suggest cropping a little from the bottom too see how you like it.

    Love the composition and the wonderful textures in the rocks and clouds.

    Yeah, maybe a tiny crop of the bottom, but that's even debateable. It would also lower the horizon a bit and emphasize the rocks and sky a bit more- not that they need it- they're spectacular.

    When you pull over at the side of the road where I live, you get a Seven Eleven and a pine tree. The suburbs suck for photography.

    Anyway- I love this image. I like the S-curve of the road. And I can't get over those mountains. Great job!
