I think you need to get a scene with quite a bit of contrast between the light and dark areas of the shot. Smoothing and strength are the two sliders which give the funkiest result.
I still haven't been convinced enought to shell out for the full photomatix license yet.

I was convinced to fork out on Photomatix. $140 odd wasn't too bad for what is the best HDR software by far.

This is 7 exposures each a 1/2 stop apart merged in Photomatix...

There's a good comparison of different HDR software here... http://photography-on-the.net/forum/sho ... p?t=900110

She hates the camera, especially the sound of the lens focussing, so she tries to bite it, even from a distance!


What sort of dog is that?


Shes listed with the council as an Australian cattle dog, but she really just a bit of a mutt.

Sorted how to make the best HDR photos, this is just using 1 file with changed exposures in photoshop. Came out rather cool still. Managed to get the hang of photomatix.

Trip to a zoo park the other day.
The young male lion stalked us as we pushed our 1 year old in the pram. Naturally I went up and down the path a few times and he followed us along the fenceline. Proper predators

Sing it now, its the eye of the Rhino, its the thrill of the fight, rising up to the challange of our rivals

Is it much more to go the twin lens kit? Check out the 18-55 before you buy, you might be surprised by how far you can't zoom in with it. I went twin lens kit, and use the bigger lens (80-200?) more than the 18-55, but depends on what you're shooting.

Need a bit of tri-pod help. I've got a Sherpa 450r and it's awesome, but I want to be able to make it so the legs are almost flat, I think it's possible as the legs have ridging on the top where it connects to the tripod base/arm. I can't find any way to get the small lips to lift up so that they hit the next ridge. Any ideas? Pic attached is the lip/ridge i'm talking about.
