I tried to link to a flickr photo earlier and this didn't work for me.
Here we go:

OK that worked, here is how I had to do it. This is with the "new" flickr, so maybe things have changed a bit.
From about step 3 above, to step 6.
I went to the image and clicked on the "Share this" button,
Click on "grab the HTML"
Went to the section where it has I copied and pasted the http://...jpg segment into the Image link popup in the instructions above.

Those are great, I would be happy with those if I took them. The only thing I might have tried was a fill or bounce from the left on several, particularly on 4. Thanks for posting.

That is a wonderful video. As I was watching I was thinking that taking that many clear photographs, that move like that, is an accomplishment in itself, and then the production of the video is great as well. Thanks for sharing.

I know you didn't ask for alternatives, but as you have started to consider others I thought I would give you my 2 cents.
I have tried Lightroom trial and it is awesome, I think I will buy it but don't have any discount so it is up there in price.
I use Photoshop elements regularly and it is really worth the price. I am going to upgrade from vr. 5 to 8 soon, pretty sure i've seen ads for the newest version that just came out around US $50 here lately.
It has an organizing feature as well as nice processing for the price.

Mike thanks for pointing me to this series from the other "character" thread, that canon blast is really awesome. I also like 12 and 15, nice perspectives and composition. I bet that was a great time.

Very nice, I like #3 series the best. I have been to several of these this year because of the great subject matter. I particularly like the challenge of trying to get a blast if they fire any guns or canon. Good luck with your submission.

When I looked at #1 I wondered if that was Santa Fe, and #2 with the monument confirmed it. Of course a few more down and it was obvious. I was there probably 12 years ago or so. I also liked the last image, looks like you had a good test drive.

LeDave, do you recall where those settings are done? I just checked thru the manual :eek: again and don't see where I can make the change.

Auto Bracket Intervals for KM/2000
Posted By Cactisboy
Replies: 5

I love to experiment with different techniques, and one of my favorite is HDR/Tonemapping (unsure of the correct term?)
I have used the autobracket setting of the KM/k2000 quite a few times, and then experimented with Photoshop Elements into FDR tools basic for the HDR/Tonemapping work.
My question is, am I missing where the only autobracket settings are .5 or .3? I would like to go to 1 or 2 if possible, but it looks like I have to change manually...
Any insite would be great thanks.
