The image appears to be lacking some contrast where contrast should be as the sun was getting lower in the sky and there are some nice shadows presented.

It's certainly salvageable by increasing the contrast.

I'm curious as to why you chose HDR for this image. A single exposure might have presented more impact.

Thanks for sharing.

Vander, I usually shoot 3 exposures for HDR when a significant part of the scene is illuminated by direct afternoon sunlight.  In this case I felt there was too much glare coming off the sunlit mountain sides.  Here's the single exposure shot a "normal" exposure.

And this is my HDR image.
