NICE! Great stuff Blurker. It looks like you have a pretty good feel for the controls in Photomatix. Still trying to get there myself.
And yeah, the right kind of clouds make for perfect HDR images. I have a bunch of great stuff from the past couple of days that I shot. That midrange lighting from a cloudy day makes for some nice results.

Yeah, I snapped off about 100 bracketed shots of the sunrise this morning expecting some awesome results... Not much tonal depth to be had when everything's orange or gray.
Of course once the sun was up and I got to work, the roof of the parking garage made for a good platform, and the sun was well up, giving tons of depth to the shots.
I frickin' love this HDR thing. I shot a bunch more downtown before the game tonight. I hope I'm not busy at work tomorrow.

Sorry, Blurker. It looks odd without it.

Just a couple more before I ride off into the sunset on the whole HDR thing.
Inspired by the delicate application of HDR in Blurker's last set. Thanks Blurker.

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?
