Just to notify you, the links are not working.

To get them right, go to your Picasa website, and right click the enlarged image and click 'Copy image location', and that's url you should post here

I did the one in the 2nd post for you so others can see it:



I think it's a great shot, but as I'm no HDR expert, just a beginner too, I can't tell it exactly.

I think it's a great shot and everything is in nice detail, but it seems to me a little too dark, but who am I to judge

[edit] oops, we posted nearly at the same time [/edit]

I suggest you should level the shot to make the horizon horizontal!
Then the shot would be grater!

Since I've been mucking about with the HDR/sorta-HDR thing lately, I guess I'll open my mouth.

akilesh - what sort of tools and methods were you using to get your HDR shot? Was it multiple shots at different EVs? A single RAW/jpeg file? A "proper" HDR is supposed to be a blend of multiple shots of the same scene, combined together and then tone-mapped to bring out details and colors. (Though admittedly, I'm not into making "proper" HDRs in the first place....)

If you did process it to be an HDR, though, it might just be that there wasn't quite enough differences in light values to really take advantage of what the layering and tone-mapping process can bring out in a photo. Believe me, my photo-editing folder has a LOT more examples of that than I care to admit!

i am wondering on your workflow here too. as for me it does not appear HDR, just too dark.
