    Yeah, dusk'ish is a good lighting range, and ambient colored neon creates some really nice effects with the HDR. Can't wait to see more from your walks.

    And while we're sharing and all...

    Here's a work in progress of a technique that I've been working on lately. What I am doing is, after creating the HDR file, I create multiple tone-mapped files, each adjusted for specific parts of the particular image. Then I'm combining those images yet again in Photoshop and blending and masking. Much more involved obviously, but I've created some interesting images lately that way. Not for every HDR image, but a useful tool to have available.

    One more from yesterday's shots.

    PS: And yes, I do realize that all the HDR stuff I am posting is "dark".

    Absolutely, Bad-Ass!

    I've been gone from the boards for quite a while but I'm still pursuing the photography thing and I'm even taking a B&W Film class at my local college. I should be buying a DSLR soon enough...

    All the images should have the same background, though. The vector (i.e. direction and distance from the spot you're trying to get rid of) that the dust-correction tool uses will be the same in every photograph, and might accidentally clone something you don't want it to clone...like a piece of building or something. Next thing you know, you've got a bigger spot in that place in each image than when you started!

You can also clean it yourself, if you are that kind of person, I would recommend Eclipse fluid, and a box of their sensor swabs (you are going to want type 2, for 1.6 crop cameras).

    This site has the different methods, and this site is where you can get the stuff.

    I think Glenn is right that having Canon do it is the safest, but having them clean your sensor every time it needs it can also be a bit of a pain.

    "Welded" on? I don't think I have ever experienced this myself. Every bit of dust I've found on the sensors of the D200 and the D3 has been able to be removed with judicious use of the rocket blower. I've never even had to use swabs, fortunately.
