I downloaded Photomatix and gave it a test drive with some shots from a late afternoon hike in an area east of Phoenx.

Please let me know if any of you have any good hints about HDR images. The program has many sliders that control things that are a mystery to me!

Great, Drew. The human eye has the ability of really high dynamic range perception.

Someone cr..... Photomatix for me but I canĀ“t use it.

Why are people, including me, afraid of the dslr Fujifilm S5 Pro; it gives hdr pictures without manipulation, due to the superior build of the sensor

You have done a really good job on these two pics. In Other Photos there is an HDR thread with info and other examples of HDR pics.

Hey guys, thanks for taking a look and for your comments. Bynx, thanks for directing me to your HDR thread ... and for the link to the tutorial. Your images are great!

These were jpegs .... I think I will try it with RAW images and see how it looks! It looks like noise is a big issue.

Pleased to seethe cacti again in the first picture and great reflections in the second one Good effort, Drew!...onlya bit much bright for my taste though.IMO, HDRmight beboth anoverkilland indispensabledepending on the scenario...butthe fact remains, it offers great bonus for those who master it!
