Ohh so I can HDR jpgs...I will have to try that. I was afraid of RAW for space issues...does jpgs work as well as RAW or is RAW more suited?

I will have to come up with some interesting subjects to try this out.

Do you and Zorro do any other photoshopping to your images besides HDR?

I detailed my HDR workflow someplace else here. Search should find it. I don't really use Photoshop though, it's just a bit too technical for me. It's undoubtedly the best though. You won't get good results from jpegs though, that's a fact. Sure there may be the occasional hit but the misses will far outweigh them. There just isn't enough latitude in a jpeg. At least that's what I've found.

That's not to say that RAW is strictly necessary for the conversion as shooting in RAW and converting to TIFF yields virtually identical results. Have a go with jpeg by all means, it will teach you the basic principles and it is good fun, but you just won't get really good results.

Zorro's tips on HDR can be found in this posting started by China Mark, which has become one of our most popular threads to date!

Stew,

There are some really great images here, particularly the glaciers and Seattle.

Nice work.

"Who is John Galt?" =P couldnt resist.

Thanks for the feed back I'm glad you like them. I am trying to see if I can get some tickets and maybe go to a USC football game. I thought I could get some nice shots there, although I would need a nice zoom lense for any action shots, but we will see, I will post an update the next time I add photos, hopefully they come out just as well!

Stew,

I love it when people know enough to ask that question.

BTW, if you care to, I have a lot of Alaska images at my webshots gallery. They're broken down by location.

Looking forward to the next update.

John,

I liked your Alaska photos. I didnt get to it but the eagle rehab center was a place I wanted to see, could get up close to the eagles for a nice shot like you did.

I am really jealous of your Victoria photo! I tried to get this exact shot too but I needed a tripod. That annoying tree is in your shot too I see (dark spot on the right). It obstructed my day time shot bleh =/
