I haven't the faintest idea what '2 ev spaced five' means, but I like the pictures - especially the second one. As well as being beautifully composed, it has a three-dimensional character to it that makes me feel that I'm actually standing there.

Very nice! While they do have an HDR look to them, they don't have the faults you sometimes see with them. When you say 2 ev - do you mean that the difference between the lightest and darkest is 2 ev or do you mean that there's 2 ev between each exposure?

They both look pretty good from the HDR point of view. I like the composition of the first one better than the second. Not sure why.

Both photos are very sweet Bahadir. You have got a good grasp of Photomatix and using it well. Herb doesnt realize its your good use of HDR that he is looking at. A well done example of HDR such as you are producing is my favorite kind of photo. The 3D quality and something else about them you are getting is truly a pleasure for me to look at. For a good explanation of EV (exposure value) http://www.chem.helsinki.fi/~toomas/photo/ev.html

Thank you for indicating your preference, Herb.That's theroad I walk along two times a weekpassing bythe Communications Faculty : )One of the reasons Igohdr isthe 3D look you mentioned. Btw, sorry for the confusion. With '2 ev spaced five exposures' I meant 5 shots each of which has twoexposure values apart from each other.

Thank you for your kindencouragement, Harriet. What I oftern fear during the procedure is the kind of terrible noise and scratches upsetting an otherwise nicelooking sky!...and I simply thank the god if everthing goes in order: )As for the question: 2 ev between each exposure, as you have guessed.

Thank you so much for the kind words as well as introducing that great software, dear friend. About this time last year I was cursing the dynamic range issue reducing a great view I enjoyed behind mysun glasses to a faint memory by the camera!
