    HDR shots

    I made a few more attempts at multiple exposure shots and putting them into Photomatix the editing in PS Elements. I was trying to keep the somewhat realistic C&C welcome.

    Roger,
    I like these shots, but No3 is IMO something special. Very well done.

    Really nice, Roger.

    You use the same process ing with Photomatix and PSE that I do. I typically feel that the tone mapping in photomatix reduces the contrast, and I almost always ratchet up the contrast or readjust my black point. wondering if you noticed the same. Like John, I think #3 is truly exceptional.

    Your technique has produced realistic-looking images, much like the eye would see them. Good job.

    Nicely done series, Roger. #3 is my favorite, the depth created by the underside lit cloud does it for me.

    Wow! Thanks everyone I'm glad that they were a success you get so wrapped up in the photos and sometimes are unsure if it works or not. Some images seem to look better than others after Photomatix processes them others look so bad/unrealistic that I don't even bother finishing them.
    John,
    As far as your question goes I usually process them in Photomatix and then scroll through the preset samples and pick the one I like and then play with the sliders from there.
