Why are my windows always blown out. I like the color of the pics but the windows are kicking my butt! If I remember, my settings were F22, ISO 100. I use a canon 60D with a Tamron 10-24mm.

Post thumbnails of your AEB shots. You obviously didn't take any to properly expose the outside views out the window/door.

What Gary said. When you bracket your shots,you have to expose for highlights,shadows,and in between.

Because outdoor light is far, far brighter than indoor light.

You didn't take enough shots to completely cover the dynamic range of the scene. Did you take a series of shots, or did you just tone map the original image?

How do you properly expose the outside views out the window/door? My ISO was 125.

Are you sure you included the 1/15s exposure in the HDR merge? What program did you use for the merge/tone-map?

Here you go. Took about 2 minutes with Photomatix Pro (this was the default Details Enhancer mode with no further processing).

Old Baldy (not sure if I called someone that before) but what is SNS-HDR? I looked online and all I found were forums about it. Can you buy it and download it from the internet? I really like all the pics that people obtained with this program. To me, way better than Photomatix. I used photomatix and had a custom one that I usually use. MichaelNel, I usually look at the details enhancer but to me it seems pale. I like the deep rich colors but can never find a compromise until Old Baldy posted his pic.

Yes, it's available online, and Sebastian, the developer, is a member right here under the name of "Pebal"

The site is here... http://www.sns-hdr.com/ (external link)

You can DL a trial version (there are 3 versions, including a free version.) I bought the "Home" version, and am very happy with it.

The SNS-HDR beats the Photomatix Pro by a mile.
