For those wanting to learn more, Ben Wilmore just announced is HDR class.

http://training.xtrain.com/serial/show/30

I am thinking of taking it because I love HDR.

Also, here is my first attempt, but I used Photoshop and only 1 image. I think that it turned out ok for my first time and on Photoshop.

Good question. I use the AEB (auto exposure bracketing) on my Canon. This allows me to take 3 shots, one at -2, the second at 0 and the third at +2 automatically one right after the other with one click of the shutter. After the first three I recompose and do it again...so I have at least 15 seconds between stitches. 5 seconds to recompose and then I must wait 10 seconds as my camera counts down for the next three shots since I use the timer feature. So between each stitch there is at least 15 seconds I would say. Now there are several factors coming in to play at least with this, how fast are the clouds actually moving and how distant they are from the camera. In my case the clouds were slow moving and not real close. Also your lens usage will dictate issues with movement, if you are zoomed way in with a 300mm lens then clouds will zip across your field of view faster than when using your 18mm wide angle. One other factor that probably has a lot to do with it is that clouds being irregularly shaped helps with the blending at the stitch joints, in other words there maybe stitch errors at the seams but with clouds you may not be able to tell as easily. One other thought is that no matter how many single plane horizontal stitches you do, you are only the amount of time it takes between each of those images joints. So from my first image to my last maybe 45 seconds or so, it really only matters between any two and their seam. Of course if you are doing a 360 degree pano you might have issues when you join the first and last images. Hope that makes sense.

To be honest I never even considered the cloud movement as a factor when I did these but I could see under different circumstances this could be an issue.

Can't you merge the three images with ANY utility? Like Paint Shop Pro? etc? etc?

Ok well here's my effort and this is an attempt to show how easy it is. The original photos are at the bottom, taken without a tripod on a windy day. I took them bracketed just to get a better chance of a decent photo, not with HDR in mind (hence no tripod) but I'm still pretty pleased with the results.

Sorry about the HUGE picture, I forgot to resize it before uploading.

Is there any drawbacks with shooting only one raw?.. and not bracketing on camera itself?

Has anyone used PAINT SHOT PRO. I have version 8 but don't see anything within it to allow for this type feature.

I used to use PSP, I'm pretty sure there is nothing in it specifically for HDR.
