how do you guys go about doing sunrise/sunset HDR images? everytime i try it, the results arent great at all for me...on the other hand, my other HDR shots during the day are great and i love them for the most part. im assuming because i need to do more than 3 bracketed shots? i always do it as 3 shots, +-2 stops

any advice?

These shots take more planning than simply assuming a bracketed sequence. One of the most helpful (and free, donation ware) tools for planning a shot like this is The Photographer's Ephemeris:

Watch the tutorial videos (even the iPad series, even if you do not own an iPad) and you will begin to appreciate how a little planning can go a long way.

With the sun in your images you will need to extend your exposure sequence and it will probably help to shoot a calibration sequence, assuming you HDR app of choice permits you to save this.

Enjoy!

Download Magic Lantern for the T1i http://magiclantern.wi​kia.com/wiki/Unified (external link). It will give you the ability to shoot up to 9 exposures in a single click. But,the most I ever do is 5 and that seems to work well for me.
