Here is a dive school built into the end of Playa Blanca near Santa Marta Colombia

Alittle comparison between HDR and 0 exp. Technically this shot doesn't need HDR so the 0 exp is well exposed on its own. Does show some of the pros and cons of HDR

This type of naturally loud green gives me the hardest time in PP. I always struggle to find the tone I like. Its a common issue for me in jungle type areas

First or third are my favorites, the second seems a little over processed, but the clouds after the pp, especially in the third are really fantastic. The greens and building look best in the first less processed shot. If you could use a layer mask to overlay the edited clouds on the less processed landscape, it may make for an interesting shot as well.

Don't like all of them, because I'm not there:frown::frown::frown:!

Earnestly, I like #1 very much. I think it looks 'natural'. The other two are overdone, especially #3.

Thanks, its easy to get overdone when the shot really doesn't need the HDR. If I keep the processing completely real then it looks not much different then the 0 exp. I do like the detail I get in the sky on the HDR but overall the 0 exp is more natural looking

Here is #3 0 exp

I agree with everyone else, the first is the best. It's inviting and warm feeling, I want to be there. The second with the HDR makes the water and sky look cold, or maybe like a storm is coming.
