Stef – Great photos. Makes me want to go grab a 6-pack of good German import, relax and watch that sunset. Be back later………

#4 is my favorite.

Wow, these are really beautiful! I usually don't like HDR but these are nice and natural. You applied just the right amount. I like #1 and #3 a lot.

Great work with the HDR - how wide was your bracketing, and what form of tone mapping did you use?

Shame about the foreground light in number 3 - it's a great shot, but would be much better without that.

Excellent series - well done!

Good work, Stefan-

Like, Salay, I am not a huge fan of HDR photos, as they tend to look unnatural and like abstract art. Were yours done with Photo Matrix software? They are pleasantly natural in appearance and I like them all very much.

Also were they three or five shot HDR's?

Thank you. The HDR shots I made in the night mode and with a tripod, 3 shots, auto bracket -3 / 0 / +3. Assembled with Photomatix in batch processing and automatic settings. Shots, in which I have tried myself with tonemapping etc., looks a little bit unnatural and abstract, how Sarah and Saly mentioned.

I love #3 and #4 - well done Stef. Likewise, I am not a huge fan of HDR but you have done this series well.
