First HDRs - Downtown Winnipeg
 
Here goes my first shot of HDR. Apologies in advance that the barrel distortion hasn't been corrected and that the images havent been cropped (and straightened). I don't have Photoshop on this machine.The originals are available if anyone wants to take a shot at them, and as always C&C is more than welcome!

Edit: Rotated the images slightly and updated them on my webserver - please ignore the above remark about the images not being straight.

I quite like all your shots. All but the first I would call HDR. The first has none of the features of an HDR. The darks are too dark and that blown out center is definately not HDR. However, I wouldnt change a thing. Nice shot with an interesting look. Do I see the light? Dog I hope not. At least not yet.

I had the same feeling about the first, but after playing with the exposures (I only had two) I left it like this (compared to the originals, the final version is a pretty major change)

Thank you for your kind words.

Does anyone happen to know how to get rid of the "shadow" behind the clouds (in the last shot). They moved between exposures and I couldn't figure out how to make Photomatix eliminate the ghosting effect...

I like the 3rd one aswell. I thought I recognized those buildings on Waterfront drive. Nice to see a fellow Winnipeger :D

I really like # 1...the railway bridge by the Forks...I think . Very striking picture...only thing I would suggest is that it's a bit out of alignment...but other than that...excellent.

It's a great place to shoot at night, theres lots of trees, water, and reflected lights. Easiest way in is up to the north end of Tache, park under the rail bridge, and trek in (the tracks are most accessible by going under the bridge to the north side and climbing up facing south, not nearly as steep)

I laughed when I saw the picture on the bridge because I was their just a couple weeks back. It was however very early in the morning to try out my latest camera. I know exactly where you are talking about. I will have to try it at night.
