I just ran the original thru autoHDR starting with BOLD but lowering the shadow value. Look at the detail on the edge of the basket. I'm not saying I know anything about HDR cause I never do it except via autoHDR. This subject may not have been the best place to begin. It probably didn't have extremes of light/dark to begin with.

Not offended in the slightest Sarah the only way to learn is by honest criticisms . Your reworking is what i expected i think .
I'll keep at it though

I agree; some that I've seen (not here!); have been way overdone with the HDR, & look very artificial. These are excellent; really like them!

Edufloyd - very nice - only one I don't like as much is the under the pier shot - it has a sort of soft, almost Orton effect and I perfer HDR to be sharp like the final shot but that's just my taste. What software did you use and what exposures?

This might explain it a little better than I can.

I agree with Martin, these are great shots but I don't like the unnatural-looking one so much.

I live the first shot - HDR is a brilliant technology for that kind of situation.

Thanks MartinSykes,i aslo like sharp HDRs. The set i've upload here has a soft look, perhaps due to the resize? because at their original sizes they are all pin sharp.
As for the software i used Photomatix Pro 4 and used 7 exposures from -3 EV to + 3 EV.

Love them all, but the night scenes are great. Sure I read some where that this camera was not much good at night time shooting........
