Default Trying out HDR technique

Hey all, saw a beautiful morning fog from a hill outside my house, and I thought I'd use the technique of HDR for this... Tell me what you think

Click Images for actual resolution

i like them both however the first thing i noticed on the second image on the right side of the image i can see is your sensor needs cleaning or you have dust spots on your lense.

when i say i like them they are both very good the second being my favourite

I especially liked the picture of the pile of withered branches, the texture of which matches with that of the sky, while suggesting a contrariness of death and life against the thriving leaves...
Ah, if only the bright opening in the sky wasn't that central.

One might even remember the lines below:

''...The skies they were ashen and sober;
The leaves they were crisped and sere-
The leaves they were withering and sere;
It was night in the lonesome October
Of my most immemorial year...''

Both are fine examples of well done HDR. The pic on left with the pile of branches needs a bit of fixing on the top centre branches which moved during your exposures causing an unnatural ghosting. Other than that I like what I see.

Yeah, the D60 don't offer any Auto Expose Bracketing, so it's very easy to move the camera slightly while changing the settings.

These were made out of 9 individual images for each set.
