Here's a pet - kind of. Took this shot at a horse farm in the area about a month ago. Had a rough time getting his head in the frame using my zoom, He ran up to me at the fence as soon as I got there - I think he was hungry.

I like that a lot. If you have a chance, could you post the 7 pics that were used to make up the HDR composite? I'd love to see how this works for this photo. I assume the bright parts are blown out in some, and shadows all black in others?

Basically yes.

Original shots. Here are 5 of the 7 (5 seems to be the upload limit so I skipped the +/- 1EV shots). Still, it gives you the idea and you can see how sky and foreground details are lost in the middle exposure.

32-bit HDR file was created by Photoshop 6. 32-bit HDR file then processed with Lightroom 4.

Thanks - that really shows off the power of HDR, and your ability to see the possibilities. Very nicely done!

Thank you.

Photoshop followed by manipulating the 32-bit file in Lightroom has "limited" HDR composite capabilities - but is often is good enough for my purposes as I'm not looking for an unreal effect, but rather to recreate what I could see with my own "high-dynamic-range" eyes - the brooding menace of the storm and the background gold skies of the setting sun.

But I do have some cases where I will need to use other software such as Photomatix to get what I really want. I'm still climbing that learning curve.

Sunsets and weather are great subjects for HDR.

Since I am pretty much doing "skyscapes" now it's an important tool for me.

Whaddya do all day?

Yesterday, DW and I went to our local resale shop. Along with a beautiful fake fur coat that she bought for $3, I couldn't resist this...

It came with all manuals, and a great padded camera/accessory bag.
Don't know if anyone here still plays with film cameras, but if so, you may recognize the Canon AE1. Everything seems to work fine, and it even had a few new rolls of film...

Anyway... enjoying this $4 investment. Next week gonna try a little retro photography.

A classic camera and a fur coat for $7: you are excellent shoppers!

Whatta deal! I still have my AE-1, bought new in 1979 for ~$300. A lot of film went through that camera.

I have the Canon A-1. A couple of years ago, ordered some rolls of Fuji Velvia to try it out.

Back then I only had a little Panasonic Lumix, no DSLR.

Thing was huge to take on trip and waiting for the film to be developed was a chore. Then I sent it away to have it scanned.

Too much hassle for too bulky gear to pack and the results didn't blow me away exactly.
