Did I or did I not ask for garbage?

Enough of these glorious shots, I WANT to go back to bad-mouthing HDR, and ALL of you clowns are a BIG disappointment. One nice picture after another.

Sheesh! Talk about nerve!

Default Exposure-blending

Thanks everybody, both for the enjoyable "bad-mouthing" and all the kind words so far. This always gives inspiration to post yet another one - and I'll keep on doing so until somebody shouts "stopp", or until I run out of either pictures or inspiration to shoot them...



This one has been put together with 4 exposures in a process similar to HDR, called exposure-blending. I use Photomatix Pro for that as well.

Nice shot, like the way the sun light reflects off the rocks.

Default Boathouse-scene:

Thanks, Calicajun!

From the same shooting-day, early in the morning, I would like to add this little boathouse-scene which gives me the most pleasure to watch. It is, of course a HDR-rendering with Photomatix Pro, done with only 3 exposures of -1EV, 0 and +1EV. Would love to have a dSLR with bigger EV-gaps in exposure-compensation to give me the would-be-perfect -2EV, 0 and +2EV's - thats my dream for my future camera...




Enjoy, have a nice week-end and take care - you hear!

Best regards from Walter of Norway

Superb. You should sell those renditions to Photomatrix.
I'll have to buy Photomatrix Pro and move to Norway!

Thank you simple and Ordo!

simple:
Ref, EV's for HDR - I belive you might be right with what you have heard or read about 3 pix with 1EV apart (-1, 0, +1) will give best details, but I usually get blown skies with that, thats why I would like the -2EV in addition to the others, just to be sure to get details enough in the highlights.

As for that boulder on top - that has been pushed there by the ice about 10.000 years ago when halve of the European continet was covered in miles-thick ice. That boulder will stay where it is until the next ice-age...

Ordo:
Moving to Norway would set you back financially so bad you wouldn't enjoy it, so settle for Photomatrix Pro only - my advise
