Hi guys,

ws just having a play with HDR the other day, let me know what you think. Btw, i was so caught up in trying to bracket for the entire dynamic range that i totally missed the telephone wires in the background. school boy error in composition terms! :?

Please let me know what you think.

thanks, matt

IMO it's a very successful HDR without looking like one. It has that low angle quality lighting that makes it glow, but realistically so.

Hey guys, thanks for the kind comments.

Bahadir, I thought you would have at least cloned those cables out for me, that's why i deliberately left them in the shot! :lol:

How did you handle the moving boat with a wake in the left background--does your camera do all the exposures at once? (So far, that's the only thing I miss about the D40 in trying HDR, though it's easy to work around in static subjects.)

Jdar, in response to your question, using a D50, I set the exposure bracketing to +2 EV and then switched to continuous shooting mode and quickly fired off three exposures, worked a treat! (Did this after spot metering on the darkest parts of the image to calculate the optimum f stop to start the sequence, also used a tripod!)

When taking the shot, although there was sufficient dynamic range to warrant HDR it wasn't too dark. As a result i could uselarge appertures for the bracketing with fast shutter speeds, that way the movement wasn't caught on camera.

Hopes thishelps!
