Well, I had asked in a prior thread if it was possible to get the three exposures necessary to process a HDR by taking an image I already had and making two duplicates and then adjusting the exposures of the duplicates +2 and -2 in Aperture. I guess nobody was sure so I didn't get any responses so I figured I'd just go for it and give it a try. I mean, what's the worst that could happen, right? So here's the result below. The first image is the original that was adjusted, prior to making the duplicates, with Aperture's "quick fixes - auto enhance". I then took the two duplicates and "quick fixed" them -2 and +2. I then processed them to HDR with the Aperture Photomatix plug in. What'd ya think? I did darken the brownish grass in the foreground a little as it looked a little too bright to me but other then that I didn't adjust anything after the HDR conversion.

Might be interesting to compare
the image you made by combining minus two, zero and plus two
with another made by simply tone mapping the zero image
to see if there is any difference.
Use the same tone mapping settings each time.

I think it looks good. The foreground on the right side looks a bit "dreamy" to me. Not sure if thats thanks to Photobucket though...
