I can't pick a favorite as they are all stunning.

Now, I've been encouraged to process some more DNG files for HDR thanks to kind feedback : ) Thank you!

Thank you! Actually one feels inside when he/she has sth good after some labour...And then, there's nothing more rewarding than such an encouraging feedback : )

Thank you Harriet! For your prospective must-see tour, I'd gladly suggest a good schedule to you, ultimately leading to the world's oldest arhitectural remains here which dates back before 9000 BC http://www.ancient-wisdom.co.uk/turkeygobekli.htm That would also make such a field work of photography I belive : )

Dear mates, what I've learned from my recent session of HDR processing I'd like to share with you is; originally shooting 5 frames of 2 (ev) spacing and then choosing only three for the Phomatix works quite well ; )
Ah, if only continuous exposure bracketing would work with the self timer mode on my K10D!

Great shots, have problems choosing a fav between nr1 and nr2.
I'm planning to visit Turkey within the next 2 years so this is a place that's already placed as to be visited.

Wonderfully rich, detailed, and well-composed series. Thanks so much for the time you took preparing, and for sharing these!

I think the K-7 is a better camera for auto bracketing - I've been taking 5 frames, with 2 stops between frames (the K-7 has a broader range for exposure bracketing than either the K10 or K20). Often I seem to get better/richer results. I still haven't really mastered Photomatix yet, but I've been having a great time playing around with it.

cool place and great photos
and a history lesson too
i really like the composition of the first one
and the detail in that bit that sits on top of the column (cant remember the technical name)
and nice HDR worrk
to often i have seen things turn out looking cartoonish
but these are subtle and work well

Thank you Dustin! That one is indeed among my favourites I've shot so far, but still thinking if it would make a greater impact if I had shot it a bit closer to the capital.

Thank you for the kind feedback. I may have put them in order of preference : ) So, within the next two years? As I suggested the fellow mates who wrote above, please let me know prior to your arrival.

Thank you once again, Harriet! Actually the K10D can also shoot 5 frames with 2 stops or lesser stops, but the faster frame rate per second on the K-7 could make an advantage I believe, especially for handheld shots! New 77-Segment Multi-Pattern Metering System for a better exposed midrange shot without any extra adjustment of exposure compansation also sounds promising for the final hdr output. Now, I'd like to know if the K-7 can shoot in exposure bracketing mode on 2 sec. self timer which allow mirror lock up as well as no physical contact to the camera while shooting.

Thank you so much for indicating your impressions! As for the bit that sit on the column, you mean the Ionic capital I suppose...which is my favourite order : ) Regarding the HDR, I should also say that I too prefer the photographic look to illustrative look, which may often has a price of a refinement session at photoshop.
