You have 0 EV doubled, so you should erase one. As for the power o.i.s you have to set off only when using a tripod because this feature will search for any vibrations does not exist causing a blurred image. So if you take a hand held shot you must set the o.i.s on.
Remember, the key to get a good HDR in terms of alignment is to use a tripod, it's very difficult or nearly impossible to take two bracketed series hand held.

Hi there,

I have the same camera and I really want to try HDR photography. I think your quick tutorial is going to help me. As soon as I get home, I'll try it.
Your pictures are great, nice work. I hope I will be able to post my own HDR pictures soon, thanks to your help

Inspirational pictures! And "how to do it" instructions. I have not yet explored HDR techniques as I do find many of the images look false or disturbingly unreal. Shall give it a go.
Thanks.

very good photos, indeed! I've tried HDR a few times, I get the general idea, I know how to set the camera for auto-bracketing and all that, but the problem I have, and what I wish someone would write up a good tutorial on, is how to achieve natural-looking tone mapping. The ones I've tried have inevitably looked like oversaturated, water-color paintings, and the more I played with them, the worse they got. I never even came close to approaching something that looks like the OP's photos.

Great pictures, edufloyd. I like them a lot. I guess I have to give HDR a go myself.

Thanks Virat1988!
This first pic (and the rest too) was made from 7 exposures at different speeds from 1/8 sec to 8 sec. using F4, then merged in to Photomatix Pro and then post processed in PS.

I have to say that I like the HDR photos a lot, and definitely will try to create some myself when I feel like I'm ready for it ;-), together with your small how-to, I should be able to manage to create at least something, I guess
