Hello Simon,

I really do hope that you'll find the time to do this, as I regard you as one of the contributors here that has a lot of experience in tweeking HDR in Photomatix Pro 3,0 and you are doing it well - ref. "church in the lake-district", "old abbey", "barge", "skipton church" and "town hall" !!

I know that every image needs its own way, but you could try and explain the most common pitfalls and how to avoid them? May-be explain some of the controls and what they do?

I am really looking forward to this, as I myself often do HDR's but really only succeed in very few of them - and not really knowing why!!

i do know what every function in photomatix is and what it is used for and why so this wont be a problem walter all the info is out there on the wonderful world wide web but it would be (i think) nice to have some info bundled up here on digi cams i think with the likes of everyone who as contributed in this thread gets involved we wont go far wrong i will start the basic functions of photomatix in the next day or so and will finish it for the weekend.

Simon, you dont have to wait for the weekend to do some HDR. A good place to practice is your living room, kitchen or any other room that has shadows, different light sources like sunlight and electric lighting. You would be shooting for the shadows, the highlights and the average shot. Maybe the window would be brighter than the bulb or lamp so it would have its own exposure, while the lamp would have another. You can get some pretty interesting shots of your own living quarters. By the way, Bahadir is pretty adept at HDR, by the examples he has posted.

Anybody got an idea of a way of making a HDR thread inside the "post your photos" tab or will we have to use the "Digital Art",or any other, thread?

The HDR thread was previously located in Digital Art. There are a couple of posts there now with a few examples.
