Default ....more of my HDR learning curve

This morning I had intended to redo the landscapes images I used last week for the HDR images at the pond; hopefully to better the sky exposure.

I had the tripod loaded in the car so it would not be forgotten this time and had decided to use the ZD 14-54 & ZD 9-18 lenses.

My quick out would be at 0700 for maybe an hour to catch the sunrise at the main pond, about a 15-20 minute walk from parking would get me to the east side of the pond just in time.

BUTTTTT wait, the AC was not exhaling COLD air and Bonnie thought it might be a good decision to call 'AC fixit' 1st; B4 photo 4 HDR time.

So that put off my camera plans today ... (got the AC working after having the compressor fan motor replaced)

Now I've been working some older photos with Photomatix to learn a feel for using that software.

......here are some of the CARS single-photos through Photomatix

Bonnie nailed it alright, this time of year fixing the AC always comes first

That's some beautiful chrome, and engines have all sorts of shadow/dark areas, making them prime candidates for HDR-type processing. Very well done.

Yep, I've learned the past 51-yrs if I just do what comes 1st (if Bonnie says) then all those 2nd & 3rd place things have a chance of moving up the chain.

I don't imagine I will do a lot of HDR tryin' but it is worth learning the fundamentals I reckon and kinda fun too.
