Default Celebration of a new Tripod - quick HDR

Hey all bought myself a new tripod today Velbon Sherpa 250R , and what can I say... It's effin' brilliant!

Here's a quick HDR I made today because of it... not that great but I was just trying out the sturdiness of it. and what can I say, 14 pictures (no auto bracketing) and no change in perspective what-so-ever!

Default Congrats on the new tripod, A!!

Need a new one myself, but there always seems to be something else with higher priority...

14 exposures!! And the software takes them all, without getting upset?!?

Hehe, of course it takes it all in Well, it was a very kind exposure on these pictures so it wasn't too much that could jinx it IMO...
Here's another HDR. It's my Grandpa's grave. This one is the "traditional" 3-shot type of HDR.
Notice how the sun positioning relates to the grave itself.

hehe, the tilt on the church was intentional...I just deployed the tripod and tested the firmness, if the camera would move while adjusting the settings, and it was rock hard

Thanks mate it's on my grandpa's grave..I haven't taken any pictures of my fathers grave. It's just a couple of stones away actually :O
