BEAUTIFUL!!! I've been trying to tone map my HDR images, but can't seem to get it right.

Unfortunately, I think my K100D is limited to 3 exposures for Autobracketing...

Almost surreal, I like the interior especially.

You can always manually bracket your images. The final photo is superb!

Very beautiful. I've thought about trying HDR, but never go that far yet. These shots made me tempted again. Thanks for sharing.

Nice work. The interior shot looks to be about as perfect an example of this technique as you can get. Your first image is quite good too although the transition from sky to earth is a touch distracting.

I have not done much with HDR but what I have done tells me there is a lot to learn to do it right. If I can learn to do it as well as you did image 5 I will be very happy.

Nice work.

Good stuff, but here is some C&C for ya...

#1. Too much 'halo' effect around the cliffs
#2. Too bad you got some serious vignetting on the top left but the sky seems to be two different colors. Its purplish starting from teh left then drastically changes to blue.
#3. Very dramatic, lovely composition, slight 'halo' on the bridge in the pool but not too bad, I would clone out the people on the right as one of them has a ghost image.
#4. Still some 'halo' on the cliffs but very close to perfect.
#5. Perfect, lovely shot. I love the low angle that the shot was taken from. I love that the focus is on the table yet it is balanced very nicely with the view through the doorway and the lines created from the table and bench lead your eyes in that direction where you get to focus on what is through the doorway, another door.
