Studying Waterfalls
Lens: 10-20mm Sigma Camera: Pentax K-r Photo Location: White Mountains ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F11 

I was practicing shooting waterfalls this past weekend in HDR i had not tried this before, I used every lens in my bag I shot stacks of 2-7 these were my best. Some of the shots needed multiple exposures due to the darkness and time of day some were very light as well. the lenses were 10-20 mm sigma, 28-300mm Tamron and 50mm 1.4 pentax I was trying to keep the shutter speed under 1 sec as the water was falling pretty quickly- again, looking to improve so all critiques welcome

The third and fifth are astounding! I would probably invest in a couple ND filters for your fav lenses and stop down just a bit... Other than that, fantastic. I would, without hesitation, buy the third one for postcards....

I do all my HDR in post processing I had to learn it to shoot real estate and have found there are outdoor applications where it is necessary to get the full light spectrum

My own trials (and mainly errors) show nowhere such a believable result - working in CS4. What program do you use?

CS6, Elements 9, Lightroom 4 and Photmatix Pro - depending on what I'm trying to do it can be one or all of them on these it was Photomatix, CS6 and Elements

I tried to photograph a waterfall recently, but forgot to take two important pieces of equipment with me- a tripod, and skill.
Number 1, 3 and 5 look excellent.

Regards

Love it. My opinion, try #4 with one less exposure on the bright end since its a tad too bright and rather hard to look at detail. Also I'm personally a shiny rocks and shiny water fan, but you may want to experiment with a polarizing filter as it will take some of the shine off objects especially on the long exposures and may make an image you would like better (or maybe worse).
