HDR Fun

I recently took a Webinar from Captain Kimo on Topaz on using their plugins and Photoshop to create dynamic images. This is a picture I took this summer on the north rim of the Grand Canyon. I wanted to bring out the texture of the very old trees and emphasize the light and path. I'm quite happy with my endeavour. If any one has any constructive critiques for this image.  please post it here. If you have any tips for hdr add them here as well.
