Default HDR Photo of Sunset

First time making a HDR photo with my camera.
This is a 5 picture HDR from a sunset from my house.
Taken with a Sony A550 and used photomatix pro to combine the 5 pictures.

Hello Bruno. There's a bluish tone in the roofs and little detail. Horizon and clouds are ok.

Too much blue overall. For HDR not much detail in the earthbound area.

Thanks Ordo and Bynx.
The problem is that i had to make the different exposures manually, so the camera probably moved a bit and when the pictures were put together it got a bit blurry.
But thanks on the comment i will try to improve on the blue saturation.

Why don't you use the camera's Auto-Bracket to do your shot for you. No fiddeling in between shots guarantees you aligned exposures - as long as you use a tripod.

I think the A550 has a 3-shot bracket-function.

Thanks Walter_S
the camera does have auto braket, but its maximum of 3 shot at -0.7 to +0.7 and manually i did from -2 to +2.

Yes, I see, and I remember now that the A550 (in fact the entire range of Sony's Alpha's) only have 3-shot brackets. It is a shame that Sony does not provide a better range there.

I am lucky so far, as my Lumix G1 provides the chioce of 3, 5 or 7 shots with either: 0,3 - 0,5 or 0,7 EV in between, giving me the range I need.

But on the other hand, it would need a scene with very, very big differences in hi's and low's to be needing more than 3 shot of 0,7EV. Our distinguished HDR-photographers 'vvcarpio' only has 3-shots (A350) and 'simple' only has 3-shots (Nikon D90).

Actually you need to go all the way up to the Nikon D300(s), Canon 50D and K-7 to get more bracket-shots than 3.....

Best of luck, Bruno!
