Looks good to me. I think I might have tried to stand at a slightly different location to get more of a design with the two fences - the pattern they have is interesting. What program did you use?

Photmatrix =)
I like the program. quite simple to use -- it seem to produced some noises but a little bit nothing Neat Image can't fix.

This is a nice shot. Some HDR photos are way overdone...to the point where it looks too processed ya know. This one was much more subtle. I think the HDR worked well for this shot. Good lighting.

ps: I like photomatrix especially for tone mapping, to create the HDR i mostly use cs2.

I like this one.

HDR shots work very well if you know what you are doing with them (I don't!).

I think it is Hogrider who seems to produce great HDR consistently.

Hey, I took 3 pictures in JPEG. The EV was -1, 0, +1 on them. This was using my 50mm 1.7 at ISO 200, f/7 (to the best of my memory.. i took it yesterday and delete the 3 original pix...). Anyway, i'll attempt more the coming days with better scenery and will keep original pix for reference =).

Looks good to me. If you wanted to give the picture a very realistic look, you did a great job, as it is hard to tell that this is HDR. No halos around the edges.

If you wanted to give this pictures a more typical HDR look, I can only think of two things: Make the sky are little darkerwith morecontrast for a more dramatic look and see if you canraise the saturation a little bit.

Also. For good results andpracticing the technique always look for high contrast subjects with lots of shadows and highlights.
