my one problem with them all is that they all look soft, please tell me you used a tripod, cos if you didint its almost always going to have camera movement in them, nice processing tho nice to see them not being OTT

the verticals in the church need sorting as well. and you have clipped the bottom of it and the gravestone which spoils this composition.

Good point's Fiona, not sure why they look a little soft most likely my processing? Light was fading as you can see the exterior church lights were on so I had the ISO on about 400 or 500 as I was just using the long len's for Bird's and the deer, so maybe the noise could of effected it?
Should I have reduced the noise of the RAW files before merging them?

If you click the images they look sharp enough for me, i find this forum will reduce sharpness when you upload to the forum, as it resizes without sharpening.

I think the HDR's themselves are pretty good :) Some people are scared of shadows and want absolutely everything available to see, so it's good to see you haven't gone this route :)

clicked the images, top and bottom look better but the middle one just is soft from front to back, however without seeing the full size version i will secede to the fact that forums can and do degrade lo res images,

have looked at them again and again its the middle one that is bothering me more than the other two....... blue snow and green colour cast perhaps??? i would be tempted if possible to go and reshoot the middle one it has the potential to be way better with or without the snow ( not talking HDR better) work is calling no more time to look long er but I will. :)
