    Hey Mike, now try this...

    Instead of ISO 800, drop it down to 100 and give yourself longer exposure times (20-30 second exposures are not unheard of for me). Let the light do the work instead of the sensor. Also, set your medium exposure down at least a full stop.

    I think you will be really happy with the different results. The longer exposures let the light "bathe" the scene, and starts to give you an aurora borealis feel. So even though you may have the same exposure values of an ISO 800 shot, what you are capturing is the actual light, and not the digital sensors re-interpretation of it.

    I've been doing tons of testing and experimenting with HDR for the last couple of weeks, and it's interesting to watch a controlled and repeatable image like yours develop as new things are discovered.

    Gotcha! I purposely set it higher to avoid the long exposure. Why? I'm not really sure. Habit I guess.
    This is ****ing rad, let Puckmonkey learn by trial and error and then have him teach me step by step. I'm learning a lot and doing it fast. Mad props to Eddie Spaghetti.

    What's with all the sex toys on the dashboard of that Beetle?

    Heheh...

    Nice work with the superwide. So many people that use them have a tendency to try and "get everything in" (which so often leads to images with no obvious subject) instead of getting in tight with the subject.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    The body piercing boutique closed early so I had to move up the road.

    NIIICE!!!

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the importance of really locking down on your tripod during these exposures.

    If your camera has a mirror lock-up, use it. And for all of my shots I shoot in self-timer mode so my hands are completely off and unable to move the camera when exposing. That adds another 10 seconds to my already laborious process, but it makes the difference.

    Looks like your dialing it in though. What do you think?
