    OK then, where's the HDR of which you speak? None of the photo's appear to
    have extended dynamic range to me. Not too surprising if you only started
    with one image. And if you only took one RAW pic, why would you want to
    convert to 3 Jpegs rather than simply apply a curve to the RAW pics dynamic
    range in the first place?
    The whole point of HDR is to capture more dynamic range than your camera
    sensor is capable of in one shot. Then combine the images to give a
    compressed dynamic range for printing, and hopefully one which more closely
    matches what the subject looked like to the naked eye.

  3. Hi Jasper

    Before I go any further I will admit I am no expert on HDR but I am
    slowly learning.

    I will agree with Mr T that this doesn't look like HDR.
    I am not sure about the converting one shot but I use a 400d and it is
    easy to do HDR.

    I will tell you how I do it.
    Get your exposure right, use raw so you get some good single shots to
    play with later.

    Then change Quality to Large
    then go to Menu 2 second tab along and go to first option AEB
    Click set, I, 99% of the time, go to 1 click set them hit the shutter
    button to go back to ready mode.

    Do you three shots, I go back through them to make sure they look
    ok and no birds or boats have entered the frame. If I have time I
    then change the exposure up or down one or two for playing purposes later.

    I use Photomatix to edit and 99% of the time you will only have to
    change it from default slightly.

    As mentioned before I started with the 'unreal' shots with weird colours
    and huge halo's then I got into it more and wanted it to look more

    This is one I took tonight using the settings mentioned above

    This was an interesting 'unreal' one I saw today. I don't mind it.

    Why have you done a HDR to an image which obviously falls between the
    cameras 5-6 stops of dymanic range?

    If it exceeds bracket exposures and blend MANUALLY for maximum control.

    I can't believe you lot are letting a PC do the processing for you.

    You are the photographer YOU do the processing.

    HDR is total and utter crap.

  5. I find it rather interesting all your comments this year have been
    directed at my pictures and always negative.
    Can you please post some of your photos so I know who the genius is that
    hates my photos.

    I find it rather interesting all your comments this year have been
    If I told you your photos were brilliant, i'd be lying to you.

    Is that what you want to hear.

    The internet is very very odd.
