    Really nice! Well done.

    This image actually reminds me of a question I had about DSLRs with auto-bracketing. Does it actually shoot 3 successive images, or does it shoot once, grabbing different exposure increments of the same image? I don't have the auto-bracketing so every typical 3 image HDR I shoot covers about 45 seconds to a full minute of elapsed time, so anything with movement is going to give me unexpected results. As I'm looking at what camera to get next, I don't see the actual mechanics ever explained.

    How does the HDR capture work on DLSRs?

    The AEB is three actual exposures and are captured at whatever FPS you have the camera set. You can adjust them to be 1/2 stop or 1 stop or 2 stops or whatever apart on a sliding scale. This is set at 1 stop.

    I went back and "painted" in the people in front a little more so they don't look as illustrated. That way they look a little more real.... I dunno... still playing around...

    This is a great one. Was this a single exposure in Photomatix? Or did you go another route?

    I dunno if your tweaking could bring the clouds out just a little bit more. The shot seems topheavy because it's so dark up there. Even still, it's a great shot.

    Yeah, the auto-bracketing is the way to go. Makes handheld HDR that much simpler when you've got a fast CF card. Snap, Snap, Snap. All the ones I posted earlier were -2, 0, +2 handheld.

    I'm sure that any of the DSLR's will have the auto-bracket function. If you pop for the big dogs (Above my XTi) I think some of them will even bracket a 5 exposure range.

    Nikon D40X doesn't (grrrr...). But it's forced me to experiment with different exposures and bracketing ranges, with some interesting results. So yeah, a highly programmable 5-7 exposure range is exactly what I am looking for.

    I think most non pro (I.E. something that is not an EOS 1D series or at least the Nikon D3, I don't know with the other Nikons as I am not familiar with them) the max auto bracket is 3 shots for 4 stops, -2, 0, +2, where the pro bodies usually do 8 stops in 9 shots. but one trick I have found that works with my camera is you can sneak 8 stops out of it fairly easily by setting you auto bracket at -2, 0, +2, then you set you exposure compensation to -2, shoot your three frames, which will give you -4, -2, 0, then set the exposure compensation to +2, and take three more which gives you 0, +2, +4. With the exposure compensation being so easy to set, it is a great way to very quickly get an 8 stop bracket.

    okay, took another shot.

    this one was 5 frames, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2... then into Photomatix!

    The clouds are a little dark, but it was threatening that day so perhaps it isn't so far off.

    the main problem i have with alot of HDRs is with trees they always come out so i dunno over saturated and almost look like a neon filter was used, but thats just my personal prefferance some people like it some dont. other than that i think both images are great although i would love to see a little bit more of a differance between the lights and darks in the clouds.

    I found this chart that shows the AEB of different models for those looking to buy a new camera.

    Yeah, it made me jealous of those D3 owners.
