    It'd be nice if we had some sort of thumbnail system. I actually can't be bothered to look at each page of this. Shame.
    It's not about how expensive your kit is, it's about the skill and dedication of the photographer, the emotion in every shot, and whether or not the little bugger moved before I pressed the shutter.

    Great shots everyone !!

    Here are two HDR's of yesterdays sunset. They were made with two exposures, four stops apart. Due to the amount of light, I had to take long exposures, lasting several seconds. This is why there is such a big gap between the two exposures used. That way, on only one picture the clouds were visible and therefore there is no ghosting near the edges of the clouds.
    I created two exposures from each rawfile, so that I had 4 jpeg files all two f-stops apart. I blended them with Photomatix and did a lot of processing in Capture NX afterwards. Hope you like it:

    Hi Steve looks like youve been busy. I've not tried HDR really myself but have been tempted a few times. How do you get an HDR image like that when the sea is obviously moving? I would have thought any movement would have showed up in the shots?

    Well if the contrast in the scene isn't too bad you can generate multiple exposures from a single RAW file.

    It was actually a combination from three images, not the best HDR image I've seen on here but not bad for my first attempt - plenty of room for improvement

    Prospero - Both are great shots but I really like the second one.
    rickalm2000 - I like this one as well. It seems wierd to see a horizon that flat and that sharp.

    Here is a sunset from last weekend.
