Default Fountain, breezeway, hills

In Walnut Creek, California, I was walking from parking to lobby of a customer and saw this fountain and the view behind it. Stopped to take a pic, that would have been the end of it as it was brightest daylight at the fountain and dark shadow in the breezeway. Fortunately, playing, I had previously turned on exposure bracketing last time I used my cam, and 'accidentally' got 3. Then tried a few times and... Not spectacular, but close enough to what made me stop and click, that I had to post, for what it's worth, my first HDR.

muir,

Your efforts gave a great result. You must be fascinated with symmetry. How was your bracketing, in EV steps.

Btw How do you like the architecture of Antoni Gaudí

Torgny, it was +/-2. I wasn't expecting much with the moving water, but had found an HDR tutorial for CS4 and I wanted to try it, these were handy. CS4 dealt with the water better than I thought possible, (though there was some bizarre pink and purple fringing it the water jets that I had to clone out.)

Thanks for the link, I found that article and many links from it very interesting. Especially - http://guell.vrama.net/
