Thank's Simon!

Yes, I agree - that picture really needs HDR.

I actually saw the Photoshop way a full two or three weeks before spotting Photomatix, hehe.
I guess I'm the odd one out on that one

I hope you've checked out my thread Stockholm in HDR, Simon. Would love your comments on it

What a fun thread! I haven't been around the critiques section in a while, and I've had a great time looking through these HDRs. I like seeing both the realistic and the fantasy shown here. I still haven't found an appropriate subject for the fantasy look, but I will eventually.

I've found that sometimes Photomatix over-saturates colors, but that can be easily adjusted. But it is good for hand-held sets. I'm lazier than many here - I get frustrated trying to figure out exposures for specific parts of the picture, so I use the camera's exposure bracketing feature. Besides, since many of my HDR pictures are hand-held, letting the camera take 5 exposures with one push of the shutter, in far faster time than I could take them means there's less difference between frames.

I thought this one turned out nicely:



This is the middle exposure from the lower set of exposures. The first picture is also a panorama, though there's only a little bit that's not covered by this frame/series.



I did try using Photoshop first for HDR but couldn't get it to work very well, even using tutorials. Using photomatix is much easier and I liked the results much better.

Excellent HDR. Its easy to see when you show us the middle shot. But without showing us that, it just looks like a photo that has been exposed perfectly. Well done.

Let me first say that your HDR is an example of how good HDR can be to show most of the values present in nature, but unable to catch in 1 exposure. Very good HDR, mtngal, and welcome to this thread here, where the HDR-buffs of this Forum are having a laugh!

Interesting, that you should mention the 5 exposure-bracket. Is you camera (the K7 - isn't it?) good at providing brackets suitable for HDR?

In my first camera there are only 3 brackets, which I can define to be either 1/3rd, 2/3rd, or 1 EV apart.

For the moment I have a camera on trial, that is just magic when it comes to HDR. The camera is offering three, five and even seven-frame options with either one third or two third stops between them. I am having the time of my life!!
