Nice shots again... like #30 most, great perspective!

I can imagine you standing there holding the 11-16 like Gollum held the ring

Thanks for the comment, Ned - which one of the pictures (they are numbered for that reason) did you have in mind?

Thank's Dustin - Yes, # 30 turned out quite well - I like it too for exactly the same reasons.

Too kind, Ordo! - I think it's mostly due to my G1. Thank you for taking the time to comment!

Since I use both programs, it is fair to say that I have traveled down the same road of trial an error. Dynamic VS Photomatix. Indoor shots I use Photomatix. Outdoor scenes it becomes a house divided. Photomatix generates far more noise then Dynamic. What I usually end up doing is making 2 HDR images using both programs. Then I blend them together at different percentages.

Well, the Tokina does all the work - I just aim the lens at the subject and pull the trigger!
Thank you for your comments, Al!

I thank you for your comments and the coinciding tips of the use of HDR-software. I used to be a big fan of Photomatix to start with. Gradually I became more convinced as to the power of DP-HDR, specially the instruments on the right side of the Tone-Mapping window,

like the Curves and Color-Equalizer and also the Filter-function is quite usefull...(I dont use Hue Shift)...

...specially for B&W's where the B/W Channel Mixer is very useful.

Seems to me that you are going one step further still, by blending two different mappings into one. I must try that once.


Thank you for your comments AR!
