The HDR is not really doing anything for me but those clouds are awesome !
Thanks guys, and thanks for the welcome Dave. I'll consider trying a single-image HDR and post the results here (if I'm not embarrassed with those results ).

I'll second the welcome, but I'm a little puzzled. Does the scene really need HDR at all? I'm struggling to see that its dynamic range exceeds that of the sensor, particularly the sensor on a D800 (from what I've read: I've not used one).Jeremy
For HDR to work well in landscape it has to be subtle - it needs to scream "nice capture" rather than "HDR".
No one complained about HDR in my recent HDR image, although I was warned not to overbrighten the subject.
... it must be borne in mind that I live in the tropics where the contrast in light at that time of day is much greater than the gentle twilights at higher latitudes...
