Default Show us your HDR picture's

This weekend I decided that I would like to find out how to produce HDR (High Dynamic Range) pictures. I went out with my cam, experienced a few days and finally I have some picture I am happy with.

Have you tried using the HDR technique, show us your results.

* First picture is what the picture looks like with the standard camera settings.

* Second picture is the HDR picture, I used 3 picture (-2 stops and +2 stops) to get this result, I like the effect what do you think?

And another one:

Wikipedia explantion on HDR:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_dynamic_range_imaging

I know these pictures are far form perfect, but hey I started learning this technique a few days ago.

I think more people on JW have tried to work with HDR, I would like to see the results of them.

HDR? This seems to simply be multiple exposures? -- Been around since film was invented - right?

yeah from what ive read about it its a technique thats been used in film photography way before digital and IMO the best ones are the ones where u cant tell its been used.

I could be wrong though, im sure someone like martijn will be along to correct me as he seems to know his stuff.

so basically, you take the same picture a few times over and combine them?

I guess you shot these pictures in RAW? I like the result, especially the last picture (2nd doesnt work for me?)

I take 1 RAW image and use Photomatix to tone map the contrast
