Created for WC Lathe Werks Knob thread
My first real attempt at HDR. Never used a tripod in bight conditions, but worked great for this image.

The 3 highlighted files are what made up the image above. Any suggestions for a better HDR image?

funny, I just took a pic just like this last night lol

Ya has that effect on me too.
Your image does look pretty good, but remember that capturing the whole dynamic range of a scene may not be the most artistic option. In this scene, I'd be surprised if you couldn't have achieved the same result (or better) using a single exposure and playing with the highlights and shadows a bit. HDR also sucks the vibrancy from colors and turns whites to grey. What program are you using? As well as HDR, Photomatix also allows you to create an "exposure fusion", which gives a more realistic end result than HDR. But, it still suffers from poor color separation and general greying of everything. I find it helps to layer a single exposure over the HDR/exposure blend in Photoshop and adjust opacity to create something more realistic. Don't know if your editing software allows for layers (although, you could always save your single exposure as a jpeg and import that to CS4, along with the HDR image).
HDR/exposure blending is a novelty at first and a good trick to have in your bag, but eventually will probably become something you use only when there's no other way.
Glad I stumbled upon a photography thread for my second post. Before my feet could reach the pedals I was taking photos
I used Canon's Digital Photo Professional to combine the 3 images into the HDR TIF using the Art Standard setting. Compared to the 5 presets, this was a mild effect color / intensity-wise ... not that there is too much color to start with. I got what I thought I was after.
I'm familiar with highlights and shadows in CS4 PS x64 (CDPP has this as well), but never got that detail or lack of noise in the dark regions like this result. I'll continue to poke around as I have a whole new set of tools to work with.
Thanks for the input.

Don't remember if I ever posted this here from the 4th..
That's what happens when things don't go quite right, lol.
