The first 1 is a true HDR (3 exposures) and the last 1 is a pseudo HDR (1 RAW file).

Thank you Jeff, coming from you that's a huge compliment. It's strange that I sometimes go out for a full day and get no shots worth keeping and one day I drive past something that catches my eye quite by chance. That's why I never leave my camera at home. I was just lucky.

Best Regards,
Gideon

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

I did these two using the new HDR feature in PSP X2:

Mount Rushmore, used HDR to properly expose the actual sculpture outside the window and the scale model inside the building:

Not as dramatic as some of the other landscapes in this thread, but it's one of my first attempts:

Hey, whe submissions open up, submit that baby to the POTN Book Vol 2 okay?

Hey, rare occurrences happen... and I am glad you were able to catch that. You did a great job with handling the raw file. I have done similar work. It can be harder to do with just one file because if you blow out or totally underexpose part of the photo, obviously you wont ever recover detail in that area.

Again, well done. I am excited to see more of your work.

:)

I like the mt rushmore photo quite a bit. The composition is great and the architect of that building had a great idea with the design and implemented it well.

The second photo doesnt do much for me I guess... Looks like a typical snapshot... I think if you were to increase the contrast and saturation you'd have a cleaner looking image.

Okay I just took a look at your lake photo in photoshop. It looks like your sky does blow out along the horizon rather quickly with minor edits. I can also see some halo effects going on around the trees and then the sky kinda gradates, light, dark, light, dark across the top of the photo which is throwing the look of the photo off for me.

So try this one again. Mid day HDR images with this subject can be difficult. Try and evening or morning shot and I bet you have better results. :) Nice try.

Thanks for the feedback, Jeff! :D I'm really happy with how the Rushmore one turned out, too. And I see what you mean about the gradation in the sky over the lake. I hadn't looked close enough to notice that before.  :o I'll admit that was a quick run through the software. I'll try to work with some of my sunset photos a bit more and see what I can come up with.

I like the image, the black and white does work rather well with this. I am interested in seeing this in color though too. Nice first try. I think the more you do it, the more you'll like it.
