These two images were sent in by Eric Peppin and they are pretty striking. HDR is not everyones cup of tea but I think these are superb. Eric sent these in with the following info:
Uprooted was a HDR using my D90 and the amazing Tamron 18-50 F2.8 with a Hoya Polarizer.
Decayed was captured when I first got my D90 with the 18-105 kit lense. The grass was so amazingly green I had to take the shot.
