What is everyone here using for HDR? Program, version? Saw photomatix had a basic version for $39 or the pro for $99. Not sure I'll be doing a whole lot of batch processing and such that I'd need the full version. Or does PSE do HDR and star trails? I'm just wanting to play with these a little and don't want to put a bunch of cash into it just yet. I would like to keep all my stuff compatible so if PSE will do those types of things I'd rather stick with that. Anyhow, any info will help.

I've been using photomatix for about two years now I really love the program, I've never used PSE, so I can't help you there.

Hey D, don't you have Lightroom 4?
If so, Photomatix installs basically as a plugin to LR or PS...I use NIk's HDR Efex Pro and it also installs as a plugin to LR and PS. Either software offers a trial version that you could check out for free.

If someone found the 60D too heavy (even a Rebel) - it still means they are willing to spend that kind of money so I would suggest this person get 'the best' point & shoots like a G1 X, s100, or the best Nikon or Panasonic

I would recommend a bridge camera(superzoom). I can recommend the Panasonic FZ series. It has leica lens. It also has manual mode. I started learning Manual Model with my Panasonic FZ18 then i bought the T2i before i upgraded to my sexyD.

that's what i do too. Lightroom 4 then export to Photomatix(plugin) then back to Lightroom then export to Photoshop for final touches.

Great shots Immaculens. Careful with the sharpening though, as it produces halo in the outline... ;)

yes - the halo is due to the major crop. I asked Adobe on the Lightroom 4 Forum about halo still being visible and its not the use of the new Clarity as it once was but it happens on major crops against solid colours like blue skies (or white). A way to minimize halo is reducing "Radius" in the sharpening - Radius determines the width of white halo. All that said - it is still visible in this shot or at least from my knowhow - it still exists despite reducing 'radius'.... its why I only posted an 800 pixel length... ;)

but, I'll again play in Lr4...
:D

I find the same problem, although I am using GIMP for sharpening.

The answer is the same/(of course the problem is the same).

Normally I can sharpen a full photo (5184X3456) with a radius of 5 and an amount 1-2 (100%-200% my guess in Adobe) without seeing any untoward halos.

Downsizing to 1024X683 for the Web, I find that I have to come down in radius to 1 or less and amount to .3-.6 (30%-60%). I always have to play until I start seeing halos.

I am currently debating whether to add the 24-105mm L lens to my collection...anyone here own the lens and can give me some advice on how this lens works with the 60D...or perhaps can recommend another lens.

My biggest issue is that I need a lens that will give better quality in low light than the lenses I currently have, plus I need a fast lens... hope this makes sense :)

actually I had posted smaller than 800 - but have now replaced it with a 800 px

Radius is down from .9 to .6... still "as" apparent on your monitor? Sorry there is no direct comparison between the previous and current - 'and' now its larger... and in my series of shots - the sun is quite high in the sky so it is shining through...

Sorry, impossible to compare from memory. The size in Flickr is 1024X683. Is this an upsizing from Flickr, or is it the actual format you uploaded?

So today I got the Sigma 30mm back from the fix. Still feels tight in the focus ring, but I will use it some more before I deside if I complaint once more.

Some quick test shot's from today. What do you think about the IQ ?
