Here's another of pots in the shed
Well sort of nature, a bunch of hydrangea flowers on a box in the garage actually.
I have been having a play setting up my 5DMkII to set itself for hdr by selecting the C settings. I made 3 different versions of bracketing and allocated them as C1 C2 C3. now I get a quick way to get 7 shot hdr. One set of bracketing is to underexpose by a much as possible, one set to get the middle and one set to overexpose by as much as poss.
I used Oloneo Photo Engine to combine the images.
Here's a larger version

Nice work. To me this looks like HDR done "right" - that is, it looks quite natural instead of being some weird neon-lights painting or looking a bit washed out.
While the sharpness of the basket (in #2) on the right is quite impressive, it seems to distract from the pots a bit (which I'm assuming were the original focus of this shot?).
Nicely and tastefully done.
Would be interested to see the "normal" exposures to note how they compare to your HDR versions... that's only if you're keen to post it.

Nicely done processing , did you need that many shots to cover the dynamic range?

nicely done, wouldnt have known unless you had said. Which is how hdr should be.
YAY Oloneo is great isnt it - wouldnt have known these were HDR if you hadnt said. Really like the hydrangeas
You've not only done a magnificent job of the HDR, but as usual, the photo's themselves are crackers!!
I must say, even the one not given the treatment is not to shabby at all.
These are SO good !!
I have been playing about with the Oloneo Beta version for a week or so - it is a bit beyond me but have just discovered the links to the tutorial videos in it.
I think it is about to expire soon

And I often delete stuff, they are just pics taken for a play, they have no real worth on their own. I like taking new ones, not dwelling on the old. That's why I don't bother putting copyright stuff all over my stuff, if some-one wants it, feel free. I'll take a better one another day.
They look great, very natural and as said not HDR 'cooked'. Well done
