About the Image(s)

I was shooting into a washed-out sky with shadows around the bridge so
decided to bracket 5 shots, -2 to +2 stops and blend in Photoshop in
order to get a decent sky and less grainy shadows. I think it works.

It's a good composition and HDR plays very well here. The color and contrast of the sky is not as strong as bridge, trees, and water. I would try select the sky and dehaze it to increase the contrast and color.   Posted: 09/08/2021 18:13:06

Bracketing served you well in this image. I also like the composition. I don't have any solid recommendations, but there are a few things you could try to see if you like them:
(1) flip the image horizontally, (2) use the "sky drama" gradient, (3) either darken the rest of the image slightly to make the shoreline scene more of a subject or darken that area to make it less noticeable, and (4) clarify the reflections in the water.
Good job!   Posted: 09/09/2021 07:56:07
