    I need to get out and start playing with the AEB and do some work on the HDR skills. Not sure when I'll have time.

    I played around with the AEB a little bit at the Arboretum the other day. The nice thing about the D3 is that it will shoot so fast that you can do hand-held three exposure bracketed bursts with relative ease as long as the scene is fairly bright and your slowest shutter speed is faster than about 1/100th. Nine frames-per-second has its advantages!

    Hand held works fine for me

    I gotta get out and take some pics now that I'm feeling better.

    I got a deal on a wide angle on ebay the other day so that might be good for HDR to make it even more "other worldly".

    That chart is great. I had no idea that Nikon went 2-9 AEB all the way down to the D200. Very cool!

    Wow! An 18 stop range with the Canon 1 series, that is insane.

    Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 EF-S USM

    So all three of my lenses are 77mm. How lucky is that?

    Here's a couple from the Getty today. I went to play around with the 14mm f/2.8 and to work on some architectural shooting skills. Believe it or not, there is virtually no color saturation increase in the post-prod of these captures. I metered on the sky to get it to be so blue.









    The rest are here.

    I've got some HDR work to do, as well.

    Okay. As some of you may have seen, I played around for a little while at the Getty Center today. I shot a couple bracketed scenes so that I could play around with Photomatix when I got back home.

    Here's what I came up with. I'm kinda happy with the way these turned out, though I still need some practice. I tried to remember the Zone System when looking at scenes, and that really did help a lot.

    I've linked below the HDRs to the images that are the median exposure in the five-shot bracket.

    After I got them looking the way I wanted them to look in Photomatix, I tweaked them a bit in Photoshop for brightness, contrast, dust spots, noise, and sharpness.

    God that 14mm f/2.8 is nice! Canon needs to get their stuff together. They have the same lens, but for about $800 more, and probably not quite as nice.

    Excellent shots, the HDRs are fantastic as well. Nicely done. I promise you guys I will photograph something besides BabyFan in the near future to share

    Thanks. I really do like that 14mm lens. It's GREAT for architectural photography! Getting it used saved me some dough, but Adorama's rating system is debatable. The website said it was E (shows normal wear, might have minor scratches, glass clean), but there is a definite ding in the glass. It's minuscule in size, of course, but its noticeable in images. I think it should have been rated at G at best. Fortunately, its easy to take out with the spot-removal tool in Lightroom.

    Still better than spending $400 more, I think.
