Thanks! It is a composite of 5 shots with 1.5 stops difference, tonemapped and all so it definitely qualifies as HDR. It is just the tonemapping operator I use most that succeeds in keeping a "natural" look while still accomplishing an effect that cannot be had with regular processing. The "correctly" exposed shot of this series f.i. has the whitewash upper part of the building almost without texture and the doorway in deep shadow.

I do try to limit myself where it comes to how natural the outcome should look and sometimes I go a bit further than other times. A couple of extreme examples below with two shots tonemapped in a slightly more "grungy" way and the others as natural as possible, almost like using a graduated ND when shooting:











Absolutely love your shots. I'm not real big into the overdone HDR stuff, but these images make me want to give it a try.

I've tried HDR's in Photoshop, but I could never turn out anything good. Maybe Photomatrix is what I need.

If you really do use Ubuntu, give LuminanceHDR a try. (available on Windows as well as it is cross-platform)

I always liked this first shot. 12mm shot standing very close to the lamp post with a tripod. The challenge was to get the shooting done before any boat or ferry came into the marina area - setting the whole walkway system to shaking




This Manette Bridge view taken in Jan 2010 in Washington state is now a historical memory. There is now a new bridge about 10 feet in front of it and this summer, demolition of the old bridge will start. When Henri Cartier Bresson said that photographers were historians, it seems to be our fate

I like all of them a lot, ChrisJ. Good use of the technology.

To everyone: What do you think is the best software for one-shot RAW HDR?

Fantastic shots... I enjoy the new angles HDR can give you to take images places not as easily possible before. I also like how it does, when well done, render a scene far closer to what you'd see with your own eyes...
I wont share any of my poor attempts, since I've really just dabbled in it so far...

Although I am amused by how 'irked' some people are by HDR....

Bobell69; How functional is that lighthouse! that looks tops for a 'back deck' view LOL!

Great pictures, Trig. And I agree that there is no reason to apologize for using it however it fits ones photographic vision.
