Spooky Marsh

Maker's notes: 

This was taken at the first meeting down in the marsh. The lighting was pretty boring with barely any color in the sunset so I decided to have a little fun and do a dramatic HDR. The merging brought some color out of the clouds as well as giving it a spooky look.

Judges' comments: 
Not natural looking enough for one judge. Interesting subject with good foreground. Cropping vertically between the branches would improve it.
