That's a neat shot!

Thanks. Hope to try a few more if the weather clears up before the rest die off.

Awesome! I wanted to shoot this when I was through there last... but our timing didn't work for being in that spot at night (I was out at the Wahweap Hoodoos almost dying from exhaustion instead ;-)a )

I know that spot has crappy light, so you did a wonderful job of controlling the exposure.

What did the non-hdr version look like?

Honestly, I've seen very little night subjects that actually look better using HDR. In your case here, I see a ton of ghosting around the ship, and the stars have really bad shadows around them, most likely because of the HDR technique. The whites are also very muddy and look burned.

I think a slight crop to cut off the light flares on the right would also help, as they distract you from the magnificent QM.

Thanks for the input. I dont have much knowledge about HDR post processing, I just kept on moving the sliders (on CS5) until I get the look I want. So basically, I was just guessing. Your constructive comment will help me a lot to learn the right way. Thanks for the advice!

BTW, here's the unedited image, just resized:

Yes, I think there's more potential there without resorting to HDR. I think you could probably adjust some things to reduce the harsh yellow sodium light, bring the highlights down a bit. I feel like the WB is a bit off, but it might just the harsh lighting.

If you turn on "allow image editing" in your profile, I'll show you a bit of what I am talking about.
