Interesting...since the FZ35 will only take 3 at once, can I assume you did something like the following?

1. Set exposure to -1 and bracket at -2 and +2...snap picture
2. Set exp to 0 and set bracket at -2 and +2...snap picture
3. Set exp to +1 and bracket at -2 and +2...snap picture

Tripod would be mandatory for something like this. Impressive!!

I compared the old wood on the carriage pictures HDR vs. middle exposure and it's amazing how much detail the HDR has.
Great job!

Hi Cherokee! I did the following....

1- Place the camera on a tripod, set cammera on A mode, set power OIS off, set the desire WB (the kelvin scale), then focus , then lock the focus by pressing AE/AF lock, then....

2. Set exposure to -2 and bracket at -1 and +1...This give me -3, -2, -1
3. Set exp to 0 and set bracket at -1 and +1..this give me -1, 0, +1
4. Set exp to +2 and bracket at -1 and +1...this give me +1, +2, +3

Of course I discard the doubled ones

Thanks again!

By the way the more exposures at a small EV spacing the less the noise and the better the details. That's something I learned from the Flickr HDR group and confirmed later with 100 % crops of my HDRs. More fine detail and less noise, I think the transitions between shot are softer and more information for the software we are using.
Of course I don't do that to each shot i take but from time to time it's ok.

Here's an example of one HDR made from 13 exposures and the middle one to compare

You can go to 'Advanced Settings' and uncheck 'Watermark' options if you are using AutoHDR.

Sorry Chuck but i donīt understand what you are asking for! My first language it's Spanish. Do you mean the water marks that Photomatix applied to the tone mapped pics?

That's a useful technique on non hdr as well. Just take three or more normal shots at the same exposure and combine them to get one low noise version.
