First time HDR, be gentle ;)
Heard about HDR today and started experimenting with LuminanceHDR. All shots where taken with FZ38 in jpeg. For some of them I only had 1 shot which I made brighter/darker before HDR.

I went a little to far I guess, but with some interesting results. Tomorrow I will try to get a more "real" result but I really have to learn what is happening when I'm altering settings in LuminanceHDR.

Any tips, tricks and/or comments are welcome, thanks ^^

(There are a few more on my Flickr)

Sometimes the HDR effect is taken to a limit that becomes hard for me to say that certain images are photographs.
However, regularly it's possible to get fabulous images that would not be possible otherwise.

These imagens are an example of that, in my opinion.

You have realy interesting images here... specially #1 :)

Thanks for the comment. For comparison I'll post the original and a new HDR from the first shot. My goal is to use HDR, but keep the picture "natural" these above are all way to altered (maybe the flower not) well think I got a more natural look here:

I like #2 best.

For single-shot HDR, take a slightly darker exposure than you normally would. You can get away with clipped shadows much more easily than clipped highlights.

I like more this second try :)

it looks very nice, and more natural

Great shots and treatments. I like #2 best especially the reflection on the pond.

I canīt see the need of HDR here. There's enough info in the original pick.
