    Prospero, I like the 3rd one best. You certainly have mastered the HDR technique. Were all these taken with a tripod? I have taken a lot of source images intending to use with Photomatix or a few other HDRI programs, but I have often struggled to get a better end product than the best exposed single image. I think my biggest limitation has been when using the autobracket burst on the Olympus E510. It is limited to +/- 1 EV and that is just not enough for some images. I only use this for non-tripod shots when I need the burst to keep movement to a minimum. I guess it is back to the tripod...

    Thanks. I'm glad you like the image.
    I took all these with a tripod. Using a steady tripod will give you the best results for HDR, but is is certainly possible to shoot HDRs without one - most of the HDRs I've shot before were not taken with a tripod.

    A bracketing burst of +/- 1 EV is indeed quite limiting. Mostly, if the scene can be covered in such a small range, I don't bother with using HDR. In this case you can often get a better result using shadow and highlight recovery tools of a RAW converter.

    So, with your camera it is best to change the shutterspeed manually between the shots. However, this is quite hard, because the time between each shot is much longer so the effects of wind will show up much quicker in the result.

    I like number 1 cos it's sharp but no 2 is my favourite, wonderful reflection. If I lived in a place like you do I'd be grinning all the time too! You must have a brilliant job Eddie to be able to get out & about taking photographs as much as you do.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them
