Thanks simple for your kind words!!

"floyd there are many ways of expressing hdr and i am a fan of most especially overcooked if done correctly ..... good job welldone "
You are right, i always like the "overcooked" look, it's a matter of tastes.
I upload two pics to see people's opinion, #1 "less overcooked" and #2 "overcooked"
What's your opinion?

1,6,an 7 are BY FAR the best, the rest look a little cartooney, but those three are wall hangers, just remember, dont get too carried away, less is more in some cases.

Thumbs up

Your picture # 1 is perfect!

I love it, and I applaude you for having the guts to post such a picture - overcooked as it may be.

But this is just a natural evolution amongst most photographers starting out in HDR. I did the same, and was very proud of beeing able to produce such lively and colorful pictures. After the first excitement has worn off, you will most probably restrain yourself and gradually work towards a more 'natura-looking' style.

As long as you keep in mind: HDR does not make a bad picture better. First you have to have a good photograph, then you can apply HDR. Do not get confused by thinking that HDR is a shotcut to fast success!

Good luck!

Thank you very much for your words Walter_S and for your advices too!!
I decide to buy the Lumix FZ35, but in the meantime, searching at internet , i found your pics in Norway with your FZ28, what a beautiful hdr's! your pics inspire me to attempt a try with HDR, of course i'm in the prosess of learning.
Perhaps some day i'll improve my self.
Sorry for my poor English.
Thanks again

floyd your english is ok yeah walter does produce some stunning hdr's i think he is lucky lol living in such beauty .... i look forward to seeing some more shots from yourself

in the last two images you posted the sky is fantastic in 2 the only thing if possible is to just knock the red tone down a step on the boat trailor in the middle of the shot .... but if it works for you ?

Thanks again simple!. Seems we have people who likes overcooked HDR and the other ones who likes the more natural look! Probably it deserves a therat apart for this topic?
You are right about the red color, i'll turn down a bit. By the way, of the last two pics, wich do you like the most?

Still experimenting with HDR and i love it!
This HDR was made from 5 exposures: -2, -1, 0, +1 +2 EV merged in Photomatix and post processing in CS3. The second pic is the middle exposure.
I would like to know your opinion. Thanks!

I like it. The stone wall in the foreground is a little bit to loud. The sky is really nice.

Default How To

Hi,

First I gotta say that your pictures are incredible ! I'm wondering where it takes place because the landscapes are crazy beautiful.
I have the same camera (Lumix DMC-FZ35) and now that I've learned a little bit more about HDR photography, I would like to try myself.
Could you tell me how to set up your camera to take the pictures ?
Is it with the bracketing mode or a manual mode ?
Anyway, I'd just like to know how to take the pictures, with the different expositions with this camera, to be sure that I'll have a good result.

Looking forwar to hearing from you,

Sara

if your camera as bracketing mode then i would advise using it as it was made for hdr he did a six shot resulting in 5 used -2 0 +2 then -1 0 +1 then discard one of the 0(middle) exposures when using your hdr software.

floyd your making me want to go out and shoot some hdr
