I have to say, I'm not an HDR friend. I find them tacky, lacking emotions, and destroying the mood of a photo. At least when they are done in a way that is very visible. When they are done in a way that actually ​doesn't reveal​ there's HDR at play, then it's fine.

As a composition it is very dramatic, really inspiring. But for me, the HDR totally destroys it, sorry. Particularly with natural landscapes, HDR strips away their natural essence. IMO, it's much more acceptable (although personally I still don't like it too much) in e.g. photos of rusty buildings or general decay.

I would've liked to see a non-HDR photo of this composition, if you have one...
