    Yes that's one I was talking about

    Thanks for the compliment. That's one of the HDRs I have been experimenting with. I used 3 exposures with +/- 2 EV. I guess I am trying to eliminate the HDR look altogether. That photo is obviously HDR to me. I looked at your Boston photo and it took me a second or two, but I picked it as possible HDR. All HDR photographs have a distinct look, and maybe it's just that my eye is familiar with the dynamic range that film or sensor is able to capture and when I see something that defies this I notice it right away...or nearly so.

    ok I see what you mean - I agree that it's rather clear your photo is a HDR, upon first glance. You could try turning down one of the "micro" sliders to see if you can subdue some of the highlighting in the foreground - you can also do this by adjusting the strength. I think reducing the saturation may also help you achieve the subtle HDR look. But also, I think it's easier to tell certain shots are HDR just because of the subject matter. The variations in color in the sky and mountaintops have the makings of a "HDR-look" shot. If the sky was dramatic during my Boston shot, you would probably have been able to tell it was a HDR pretty quickly. And, since I'm a fan of sky color effects I would have surely ran with it. The sky is rather plain in my shot so it's not as easy to pick up on that cue. Something else to keep in mind.

    Very cute Droopy! I think I'd like both eyes in focus though but excellent image.

    LOL yeah it wasn't all in focus but the picture was too cute to trash... 1) the 50mm f/1.4 isn't the best in low light focusing. It was strobist practice. 2) I didn't think the DOF was that shallow at f/2.2

    Here are all the pictures I took on a hike to Ptarmigan Tunnel. It would practically be impossible to take a bad pictures in Glacier Park.

    It was just a white ceiling and the rear wall was an entertainment center. I just use a cybersync setup with an SB-28. I shot the SB-28 over my left shoulder.

    SB-28? is that a sigma flash or something?

    P.S. if you think the 50mm 1.4 is bad at focusing in low light you should try the 50mm 1.8! lol
