    High Dynamic Range

    I recently bought Photomatix Pro and thought I'd have a play with some HDR images whilst I was in the Wye Valley recently. First time I've ever done this, but fairly pleased with the results. Anyone else tried HDR?

    Couple of Tintern Abbey and a couple from Puzzlewood:

    Some great shots here people.

    lbr- the HDR stuff is interesting... I'd just bring down the saturation in the grass in the first two pics a fraction.

    So, here's a few of mine...

    Believe it or not I already did! You're right though; with a fresh set of eyes, perhaps a touch more.

    Dev the problem is to get the moving traffic effect I really needed a tripod I suppose I could have had a look for something to rest my camera on but it was a busy thursday night and I had already had a couple of London Pride ale by then.

    The night shots of Westminster I did actually rest my camera on westminster bridge to keep it still but I am now kicking myself for not using a higher ISO but that is just an excuse to get back down to London again :D With mobitix and the 2 hour trains it is just a suburb for me now.

    lbr - Now that I'm home, it looks ok on my own computer. I guess my screen at work (samsung 245B) has a wider gamut an more saturation than my laptop.

    How do you manage to get so close to these subjects?

    Gives me the creeps! (Shudders).
