I love landscapes, but this is going to be a hard topic for a lot of us. Just too many to choose from....

Let's just not get too crazy with the HDR. Natural HDR is a tool that many of us use to show something closer to what the eye sees in our landscapes; however, HDR to many other people is an "art form" unto itself. I just don't think that realistic landscapes and extreme HDR belong in the same contest.
